    What to Know

    • Miami Hurricanes sophomore guard Bruce Brown Jr. is expected to miss the rest of the season because of a left foot injury.

    • He's scheduled to be evaluated by doctors Monday, but even if he receives clearance from them, his foot will need six weeks of rehab.

    • Brown is considered a potential NBA first-round pick if he decides to turn pro after this season.

    Miami Hurricanes sophomore guard Bruce Brown Jr. is expected to miss the rest of the season because of a left foot injury, which means he may have played his final college game.

    Coach Jim Larranaga said Brown won't play Thursday when the No. 6-seeded Hurricanes (22-9) face No. 11 Loyola of Chicago (28-5) in Dallas in the NCAA Tournament.

    Brown was still in a walking boot Sunday when the Hurricanes learned about their tournament pairing. He's scheduled to be evaluated by doctors Monday, but even if he receives clearance from them, his foot will need six weeks of rehabilitation, Larranaga said.

    "You go to the NCAA Tournament and you play Bruce Brown, you think he'll play hard? You're darn right," Larranaga said. "And that would that pressure on the danger of him reinjuring it."
