Senior point guard Grant Gibbs will miss up to four weeks with a dislocated right kneecap.

Luckily, there is no ligament damage to the knee. There were initial concerns that Gibbs had torn his ACL or MCL.

“It wasn’t as bad as they anticipated,” Gibbs told “It’s just a dislocated kneecap, so no ACL, no MCL. I’m looking at four-to-five weeks, but hopefully it will be sooner than that.”

Gibbs injured the knee in the first half on Tuesday night at DePaul.

He wasn’t the only one to get hurt during the game. All-american forward Doug McDermott sprained a joint in his shoulder, but he finished the game and shouldn’t miss any game-time moving forward.
