MADISON (WKOW) -- UW-Madison Sports Medicine staff says Wisconsin senior forward Mike Bruesewitz is expected to miss the next four to six weeks because of a leg injury.
UW officials say Bruesewitz sustained a laceration to his lower right leg at practice on Tuesday. He had surgery Tuesday night. He has been released from the hospital and has already begun rehabilitation.
UW Sports Medicine staff says Bruesewitz injured his leg after awkwardly coming in contact with the back half of the basket stand, while diving out of bounds.
Bruesewitz is from St. Paul, Minnesota. He has appeared in 98 career games with 49 starts, averaging 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds last season.
