Seton Hall freshman center Kevin Johnson will undergo surgery today (Wednesday) for a partially torn meniscus and is expected to miss 2-3 weeks, according to a report in The Star-Ledger.
“Leaves us a little thin for the next three weeks, but gives us a chance to play small and quick,” Pirates coach Kevin Willard told SNY.tv by text.
Seton Hall is already without junior forward Patrik Auda, who will miss the season with a broken bone in his foot and is expected to redshirt.
As the Ledger reported, Seton Hall has already taken a beating in its frontcourt. Sophomore Brandon Mobley missed two games in November with a knee injury, and junior Aaron Geramipoor has missed the team’s last five games with a stress fracture that could keep him out until the end of January. Junior center Eugene Teague is playing with a slightly sprained right ankle that may require post-season surgery.
The Pirates are 10-2 entering Friday’s game against Stony Brook. They open Big East play Jan. 2 at DePaul.
