Tyrese Haliburton to miss rest of 2020 season with broken wrist

Tyrese Haliburton looks to drive by his defender against No. 13 West Virginia on Feb. 5.

After receiving an MRI on Sunday, Tyrese Haliburton’s season is officially over, according to a press release.

The sophomore guard will miss the remainder of the 2020 basketball season after he broke his wrist after falling to floor on Saturday against Kansas State after blocking a shot attempt.

Haliburton’s wrist was already going through pain and injury concerns earlier in the season, when he was sidelined before Iowa State would take on and eventually lose to Florida A&M.

Haliburton was being projected as a top-10 lottery pick in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft, but with his season being cut short, the high draft position could be in jeopardy.

Haliburton was averaging a team leading 15.2 points per game, along with a Big 12 leading 6.5 assists per game.
