BREAKING: Potential Freshman Starter Franz Wagner Breaks Wrist, Out 4-6 Weeks

Unfortunately, touted freshman Franz Wagner is going to miss significant time to start the season due to injury.

From Associate Director of Athletic Communications for Men's Basketball, Tom Wyrot:

The University of Michigan David and Meredith Kaplan Head Men's Basketball Coach Juwan Howard announced today (Monday, Oct. 21) freshman guard Franz Wagner will miss four to six weeks after he was diagnosed with a non-surgical fracture to his right wrist. Wagner is expected to make a full recovery.

"While this is an unfortunate situation for Franz, we know he will make his return as soon as he is able," said Howard. "We have the finest medical staff and trainers at Michigan so we know he is in good hands."

Wagner, the younger brother of former All-Big Ten forward and current Washington Wizard Moritz Wagner, is one of two incoming freshman (Cole Bajema) this season.
