Iowa State sophomore point guard Tyrese Haliburton is out for the rest of the season because of a left wrist fracture suffered in Saturday's win over Kansas State.
An MRI exam on Sunday revealed the injury.
Haliburton was averaging a Big 12-best 6.5 assists and was second on the team in scoring at 15.2 points per game -- one-tenth of a point behind Rasir Bolton. Haliburton also was averaging 5.9 rebounds and 2.5 steals in 22 games.
"We are disappointed for Tyrese and his family and we are focused on helping him in his recovery," head coach Steve Prohm said in a statement released Monday morning.
"Tyrese is a great teammate, leader and valuable member of this program and university in so many ways. There is no doubt in my mind that Tyrese will face this setback with the same energy and passion that we have all come to appreciate and that he will return from this better than ever."
Iowa State (10-13, 3-7 Big 12) snapped a four-game losing streak on Saturday. The Cyclones play at Oklahoma on Wednesday.
"This comes as a shock to me, my family, my teammates and coaches," Haliburton said in a statement. "As this season continues, I will try to be the best teammate possible. I know my brothers will step up and I can't wait to be there every step of the way."
Haliburton could have played his final game with the Cyclones. Several 2020 mock drafts peg him as a top 10 selection.
