 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pitt junior point guard Levance Fields will be out eight to 12 weeks after breaking a broken bone in his left foot to become the second Panthers starter knocked out of the lineup in as many games.
Fields was hurt driving to the basket in No. 6 Pittsburgh's (11-1) first defeat of the season, an 80-55 loss in Dayton on Saturday night. He will have surgery Monday on the fifth metatarsal in his left foot, the school said Sunday.
``We're extremely disappointed for Levance,'' coach Jamie Dixon said. ``We expect him to make a full recovery and return sometime later in the season.''
Small forward Mike Cook was lost for the year when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Pitt's 65-64 win over Duke at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 20.
Fields will likely miss the rest of the regular season, including Big East conference play. Pitt's next game is Jan. 2 at home against Lafayette.
He was averaging 11.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 12 starts for Pitt this season, his second as a starter. He had started 49 straight games at Pitt.
Fields' injury leaves Pitt with little depth. Ronald Ramon is likely to replace Fields at point guard, but has been inconsistent this season. Ramon is nursing a sore shoulder and missed all eight shots in the Dayton loss. He is 1-for-15 in the last two games.
Pitt is down to nine scholarship players because redshirt freshman Austin Wallace was lost for the season when he fractured the patella in one knee in practice earlier this month.
