WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -Purdue point guard Lewis Jackson is out indefinitely after surgery Tuesday to repair a foot injury he suffered in practice last week.
Jackson started 30 games as a freshman last season and averaged a team-best 3.3 assists per game. He was expected to return from two suspensions in time for the No. 7 Boilermakers to play South Dakota State on Friday at the Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands.
Jackson missed the season-opening win against Cal State-Northridge for playing in an unspecified NCAA-sanctioned event without approval. He missed the preseason after he pleaded guilty in April to charges of illegal alcohol consumption and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Freshman Kelsey Barlow is expected to get extra minutes in his place.
