DETROIT (AP) -Michigan State is expected to be without its top frontcourt player for at least a couple more weeks.
Center Goran Suton is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery on his sprained left knee Thursday. He will be out at least two weeks and perhaps a month, forcing the 13th-ranked Spartans to start freshman Delvon Roe on two surgically repaired knees.
Suton scored 10 points in the Spartans' opener, had three points in the second game and missed his fourth straight game Wednesday night against top-ranked North Carolina.
The 6-foot-10 senior averaged nine-plus points last year for the second straight season. He averaged a career-high 8.2 rebounds last season, making him the Big Ten's top returning rebounder.
