Wichita State Center Carl Hall Out 1 Month With Thumb Injury

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Carl Hall bumped a teammate and fell onto the thumb on his shooting hand during Saturday's practice. The injury will require surgery and sideline the Wichita State center for at least a month.

Wichita State center Carl Hall will miss a month after undergoing surgery to correct a thumb injury that occurred during Saturday's practice, according to head coach Gregg Marshall.

Hall bumped into Cleanthony Early and fell onto the thumb during the practice session. His surgery will place a pin in the bone to hold the thumb in place while it heals.

The senior has been the top scorer and rebounder for the Shockers this season, and was considered to be the main threat for Wichita State entering this season. If the time frame holds, he could return Jan. 13 against Evansville.

In the meantime, the Shockers will need to address how they replace 13.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Most of the taller options on the bench have played limited minutes for the 9-1 Shockers.

Wichita State faces Charleston Southern on Thursday before hosting Southern Mississippi on Saturday. The Shockers start the conference season at the end of the month against Northern Iowa.
