Virginia head basketball coach Tony Bennett announced Tuesday that freshman guard Malcolm Brogdon will not return to the lineup this season after suffering a broken bone in his left foot. Brogdon will undergo surgery on Wednesday.
The freshman guard missed the last two games with the injury and did not travel with the team to Maryland. Brogdon played in Virginia's first 28 games and started once. He averaged 6.7 points and 2.8 rebounds a game. Brogdon scored in double figures five times, including his season-high performance with 16 against Michigan.
Brogdon was injured in the Virginia Tech game on February 21 and played his final minutes against North Carolina on February 25.
He is the second player to break a bone in his foot this season. Senior forward Assane Sene was injured in January.
