Nebraska junior guard Anton Gill will miss the remainder of the 2016-17 season after suffering a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee earlier this week.
Gill, a 6-foot-3 guard from Raleigh, North Carolina, suffered the injury during a team workout Sunday evening and test results Monday revealed the ruptured patella tendon. He will have surgery on Wednesday and the typical rehab for the injury is between 6-8 months.
Gill had played in all 12 games and made one start for the Huskers this season, averaging 3.8 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. He comes off a season-high 10-point effort against Southern on Dec. 20, and also had 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting in the win over Dayton at the Wooden Legacy last month.
Gill spent the first two seasons of his college career at Louisville before transferring to Nebraska.
