Shocker basketball guard Evan Wessel has decided to forego the rest of the season and schedule surgery to repair a broken right pinky finger.
WSU coach Gregg Marshall said in a news release that Wessel tried to play through the pain, but it is best that he get the finger fixed and apply for a medical hardship.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore started the first eight games of the season and averaged 5.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.
The Shockers, at 14-1, are having an excellent season despite losing three starters to injuries. Senior forward Carl Hall has had surgery on his thumb and redshirt freshman Ron Baker is recovering from a stress fracture to his foot.
