Maryland forward John Auslander will miss the remainder of the season due to a broken left tibia, according to an announcement by head coach Mark Turgeon on Thursday afternoon.

Auslander has played in four games this season and has registered 16 minutes of playing time (averaging four minutes per game this season). The junior forward has shot 2-3 from the field and 1-2 from the free throw line to record a total of five points this season. He is averaging 1.3 points and 0.5 rebounds per game this season.

Turgeon stated that Auslander could undergo surgery as early as Friday and will require 12 months of recovery time. With his absence, Maryland will be left with 13 players for the remainder of the year.

The Terrapins will return to action on Friday night when the team hosts Stony Brook. Maryland will be entering the contest on a nine-game winning streak and will look to improve their home record to 8-0 this season.
