MADISON (WKOW) — Wisconsin men’s basketball player Aleem Ford will have surgery on his knee Wednesday after an injury, UW Sports Medicine staff reports.
The sophomore forward will be out indefinitely for rehab, but the team expects he will be able to play at some point later this season.
Ford played in all 33 games last season. He started in 20 games. As a redshirt freshman, he averaged 5.8 points and 2.8 rebounds. He shot a team-high 40.9% from the three-point range. His 45 three-point shots are the fifth highest freshman total in Badger history.
The Wisconsin men’s basketball team opens its season against UW-Oshkosh Friday in an exhibition game. The regular season starts November 6 against Coppin State.
