Michigan guard Caris LeVert had surgery Monday to repair a stress fracture in his foot, Wolverines coach John Beilein said in a statement.

Beilein said that LeVert should be fully recovered in eight to 10 weeks.

“Caris underwent surgery today for a stress fracture of his foot at the University of Michigan hospital,” Beilein said in a statement, via CBSSports.com. “He is doing well and we expect him to make a full recovery in about 8 to 10 weeks. We are confident he will participate in our late summer training and play in our August trip to Europe.”

Michigan will need to reload next season and depend more on LeVert after Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary left for the NBA.

LeVert averaged 12.9 points, 4.3 rebounds per game and shot 41 percent from 3-point range last season for the Wolverines.
