Maryland leading scorer Dez Wells to miss four weeks with broken wrist

59

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Maryland senior forward Dez Wells will be sidelined for at least four weeks because of a broken bone in his right wrist.

The injury occurred in Maryland’s 72-63 victory against No. 13 Iowa State on Tuesday. Wells had surgery Friday morning in Baltimore, the team announced.

Coach Mark Turgeon says, “We will certainly miss our team leader.

… I am extremely disappointed for Dez.”

Wells is averaging a team-high 16.2 points per game and is a big reason behind the Terrapins’ 5-0 start.

Maryland plays host to Monmouth on Friday night.
