Indiana sophomore forward OG Anunoby will miss the rest of the season, according to a statement released by the team on Friday.

"It has been determined that OG Anunoby will undergo surgery on his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season. He is expected to make a complete recovery," the statement read.

Anunoby suffered the injury in Indiana's win over Penn State on Wednesday.

"It's been a long couple of days for everybody, hard for him, hard for all of us," coach Tom Crean said. "If everything goes as expected, he'll have a 100 percent recovery."

The 6-foot-8 forward missed time earlier this season with a sprained ankle. He was averaging 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

Whether this ends Anunoby's Indiana career remains to be seen. He ranks No. 13 on Chad Ford's latest Big Board, although this injury will affect his pre-draft workouts.

"For a young man, OG has a very strong faith and a courageous spirit," the statement added. "We are going to do everything as a basketball family to help him recover and rehabilitate from this unfortunate situation."

Hoosiers forward Juwan Morgan also is battling an injury. Crean said it is doubtful Morgan will play this weekend after injuring his left foot in a win over Rutgers last Sunday. Indiana (13-6, 3-3 in the Big Ten) hosts Michigan State on Saturday.

"We've been in these situations before, but it's uncharted for this team," Crean said. "Certainly the Collin Hartman injury was hard, but it was in the preseason and they didn't get to see what Collin brought to this team. But they did get to see what OG brought to this team."
