UConn Guard James Bouknight Out Indefinitely Following Elbow Surgery

UConn star guard James Bouknight is out indefinitely after he underwent surgery on his left elbow, per the school.

Bouknight suffered a hyperextended left elbow while pursuing a loose ball in the Huskies’ game against Marquette on Jan. 5. The sophomore missed the team’s next two games, a pair of wins over Butler and DePaul. Head coach Dan Hurley said on the Goodman & Hummel Basketball Podcast that Bouknight saw a specialist this week and was only expected to miss “a couple more games.”

Bouknight is one of just five high-major players averaging at least 20 points and 5 rebounds per game this season and is considered a clear contender for Big East Player of the Year.
