Bruce Brown will undergo surgery on Thursday after injuring his left foot in practice on Monday.

Brown was a potential lottery pick heading into the season, but he has not had as good of a year as many expected out of him. A 6-foot-3 athletic specimen, Brown has struggled to find consistency with his jumper and his playmaking.

He is expected to miss six weeks. The first round of the NCAA tournament begins precisely six weeks from the day that Brown has surgery, meaning that this is likely going to act as a season-ending injury.

Without Brown in the fold, expect Lonnie Walker and Chris Lykes to play a much bigger role. Both players have been terrific of late, with Walker finally looking like a five-star recruit and a potential NBA player.
