The University of Michigan announced that DJ Wilson will be out 4-6 weeks after undergoing surgery on his finger. The injury will rule him out of game action for Michigan’s Italy Trip, but he will still travel with the team.
University of Michigan men’s basketball head coach John Beilein announced today (Wednesday, August 6) freshman forward D.J. Wilson (Sacramento, Calif./Capital Christian School) underwent successful surgery on his right pinky finger and will miss 4-6 weeks for recovery.
“This is an unfortunate injury for D.J.,” said Beilein. “However, we have the best training and medical staff here at U-M, so we know he is in good hands. We anticipate a speedy recovery so D.J. will be back and at 100 percent when we start our September workouts.”
Wilson, who will still travel with U-M to Italy on Aug. 15-24, averaged 13.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game last season at Capital Christian School. He guided the Cougars to a 28-4 record, 10-0 Golden Empire League and a final No. 3 state ranking.
