First David Foster, with his broken foot, and now small forward Aaron Dotson will miss four to six weeks due to surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot.
Dotson, a transfer from LSU, hurt his foot in practice ago week ago Thursday. He received an MRI on the foot the next day and was seen in a walking boot.
Coach Larry Krsytkowiak said, "It's tough for Aaron, but he will be back. This will give guys a chance to step up. What doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. We feel that to have some depth now and that we have the chance to plug people into the rotation and keep going. We're lucky in that regard. This is a hard thing for Aaron, and we hope the surgery went well for him. We feel that we can play well without him and be stronger when he gets back to us."
Dotson was a projected starter for the Utes, and had potential to be one of the Utes' best scoring guards, if healthy. His status will have a definite impact on their season and its success.
