Report: Vanderbilt's Aaron Nesmith to miss time with injury
Vanderbilt F Aaron Nesmith has been playing like a superstar this year. Through 14 games, he’s averaging an SEC-best 23 points, to go with 4.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game.
However, according to reports that surfaced on Friday night, Nesmith is now in danger of missing the rest of the 2019-20 season.
Per the Vanderbilt Hustler, Nesmith has a stress fracture in his foot and may miss the rest of the year:
Vanderbilt sophomore forward Aaron Nesmith is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his foot and will likely miss the remainder of the 2019-2020 college basketball season, per sources close to the team.
Per the report, Nesmith will seek a second opinion, but this is awful news for the Commodores.
This is the second year in a row Vandy is dealing with the loss of a star player, as PG Darius Garland sat out most of the 2018-19 season after suffering an injury.
