Eron Harris Will Require Season-Ending Surgery
Eron Harris is done for the season after suffering a right knee injury in Saurday's loss to Purdue.
Michigan State's Athletic Department released a statement on Sunday regarding Harris and his injury.
“We all feel absolutely awful for Eron,” said MSU head coach Tom Izzo in a statement. “As I said last night, I couldn’t ask for more than what Eron has given me and this program. Over the last month he’s grown even more as a leader and been an example to his young teammates. And maybe I didn’t even fully grasp it until I walked on the court and saw the admiration his teammates had for him and the tears in their eyes. There’s no faking the respect they have for Eron as a man, as a player, and most importantly a teammate."
Harris traveled with the team from Purdue where he underwent an MRI and it was discovered that he would need surgery to repair his knee. The school did not specify exactly what was injured in Harris' knee but the surgery will keep him out for the rest of the year.
