Junior guard Damion Lee will miss the rest of the season with a fracture in his right hand, the Drexel University men’s basketball team announced Sunday evening.
Lee was averaging 21.4 points per game after the team’s overtime loss to Northeastern University Feb. 21, the most of any player in the Colonial Athletic Association. He was also averaging 38.1 minutes per game, most on the team, and 6.1 rebounds per game, second-most on the team.
Lee missed the final 25 games of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
With this injury, the team has lost six different players to extended injuries. Lee will be the sixth Dragon to miss at least two weeks of playing time with an injury this season.
In the Dragons’ loss to James Madison Feb. 18, Lee became the 11th player in Drexel history to score at least 1,500 career points. He ranks No. 10 in program history with 1,538 points in 95 career games.
The team has two regular season games remaining before the CAA tournament begins March 6. The Dragons host the University of Delaware on Feb. 26 at 7 pm., and head to The College of William & Mary Feb. 28 at 2 pm.
The Triangle will have more information on this story as it becomes available.
