Dez Wells breaks wrist, out 4 weeks

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland senior forward Dez Wells will be sidelined for at least four weeks because of a broken bone in his right wrist.

The injury occurred in Maryland's 72-63 victory over No. 13 Iowa State on Tuesday. Wells had surgery Friday morning in Baltimore, the team announced.

Said coach Mark Turgeon: "We will certainly miss our team leader. ... I am extremely disappointed for Dez."

Wells is averaging a team-high 16.2 points per game and is a big reason behind the Terrapins' 5-0 start.

Maryland hosts Monmouth on Friday night.
