Northeastern's Jonathan Lee Out With Foot Injury

Northeastern's basketball hopes of jumping in the CAA standings this year were looking pretty good, and then the injuries started to happen.
The latest, announced last Friday, is that senior Jonathan Lee will be out six weeks with a foot injury. He suffered the injury last Thursday in practice doing routine drills.
Coach Bill Coen said in a statement: "For Jon, as senior co-captain, this is a setback, but his perseverance and work ethic are unparalleled. He will continue to provide us with valuable leadership during his rehabilitation and we look forward to his return on the court. This adversity will provide others on our team with opportunities, which I believe will make us a stronger team as the season progresses. I am confident in this team and our chemistry and resolve."
The 6-foot-2 guard was a preseason All-CAA first selection after averaging 14.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.5 assists last season. Lee, along with Smith and Ford, were among the best trios in the conference. With Lee out until December, sophomore Demetrius Pollard will see increased playing time.
