Colorado’s Tre’Shaun Fletcher out 6-8 weeks with knee injury

Dec 13, 2013; Boulder, CO, USA; Colorado Buffaloes guard/forward Tre

The Colorado Buffaloes basketball program got a little more bad news on Tuesday as they’ve learned that they’ll be without Tre’Shaun Fletcher, due to a knee injury which required surgery, for a period of six-eight weeks.

This news come right of the heels of the team learning that they would lose their most important player, junior guard Spencer Dinwiddie, to a torn ACL that he suffered in this past Sunday’s loss to the Washington Huskies.

Fletcher might not be as important of a piece to this Colorado team, but they certainly couldn’t have used the blow to the depth chart after the Dinwiddie injury.

On the season, Fletcher averaged 3.5 points per game in an average of 10 minutes per contest. The freshman was looked upon as someone that could potentially step up in the absence of Dinwiddie, but that is now out of the question.

With the timetable, Fletcher could be back in time for the Big 12 Conference tournament, although obviously that all depends on the rehab process going forward following the surgery.
