Michigan State star guard Joshua Langford to miss rest of season with ankle injury

Detroit News

Michigan State junior guard Joshua Langford will miss the rest of the season, the team announced on Wednesday.

Langford has missed the last eight games with a foot injury after starting but sitting out the second half of a victory over Northern Illinois on Dec. 29

The 6-foot-6 guard was averaging 15 points a game through the first 13 of the season. He was shooting 40.3 percent (29-for-72) from 3-point range. He’s started 76 of 83 career games and is averaging 10.2 points a game while shooting 40.7 percent from 3-point range.

“It's with great sadness that I have to announce that after numerous studies, rehabilitation and an attempt at return, it has been determined that Josh will miss the remainder of the season," Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said in a statement. "Josh has a stress injury that we caught fairly early and we had hoped that, with treatment and rest, he would recover. He has not, and will likely need surgery to prevent problems in the future.
