Jaylen Fisher has played his last game for TCU.

On Thursday, the program announced that the junior guard will not play the rest of this season and will be leaving the program at the end of the year.

“After talking with Jaylen, it’s been determined that he will not play this season or in the future at TCU,” head coach Jamie Dixon said in a statement.

This is major news for the Horned Frogs. Fisher was arguably their most important player, a second lead guard to pair with Alex Robinson and the best defender in their backcourt. He was averaging just 12.1 points and 2.7 assists this year while battling knee issues for the third straight season. As a sophomore, he averaged 12.3 points and 5.4 assists while shooting 43.9 percent from three.

Fisher only played in nine games this season, so if he decides to transfer out of TCU he will be able to get this season back as a medical redshirt. With two years of eligibility remaining, he’ll be one of the most sought after transfers on the market this summer.

Fisher underwent meniscus surgery in the offseason, the third time in his career he’s had knee surgery.

TCU is 13-3 on the season and 2-2 in the Big 12.
