Former walk-on John Auslander fractured his left tibia, better known as the shinbone, during the past week and will be sidelined for the rest of the season, coach Mark Turgeon announced Thursday.
The 6-foot-7, 220-pound junior forward had hoped to have surgery tomorrow, but it's likely the procedure will have to wait until after Christmas, Turgeon said. The surgery requires a 12-week recovery period.
Auslander, who sat out as a transfer during the 2010-11 season before making his debut as a Terp last year, has played in four games this season and recorded five points, two rebounds and one steal. He played for seven minutes and started the second half against Monmouth as his fellow post players struggled.
Auslander is known for his boisterous and vocal candor on Maryland's sidelines during games. With hopes of a post-college coaching career, he can often be seen instructing teammates and jumping off the bench when the Terps make a good play.
Asked if this injury will keep Auslander seated, and actually on the bench, more than he's accustomed to, Turgeon said: “For a while, yeah.”
Sucks for Auslander. I wish him a speedy recovery.
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
Damn, that sucks. We now have exactly 0 walk-on players that will see minutes other than the final two minutes of a game.
Hopefully it doesn't impact practice too much.
He was a transfer wasn't he? I wonder how much eligibility he has left? Tough break -- hope he has a speedy recovery.
I initially read this as Auslander is better known as "The Shinbone" and thought that was either a very ironic nickname or a very mean nickname.
Not a jack ass. I am a 4 star poster on RCMB - spartanfan48413
LOL at "better known as the shinbone"
TerpMan08 will be devastated.
