NC State guard Terry Henderson is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with an ankle injury.
The 6’5” redshirt junior started on Friday, but exited after seven minutes of play and underwent x-rays and an MRI during the game.
“Obviously, this is a big blow to Terry and to our team,” head coach Mark Gottfried said. “I feel bad for Terry. He worked extremely hard to get ready for this year. Our team has to adjust, and we will need some young players to step up.”
Friday marked Johnson’s first time playing for the Wolfpack, as he sat out the 2014-15 season after transferring. He averaged 11.7 points per game for the Mountaineers in the 2013-14 season.
