Michigan freshman guard Franz Wagner will miss four to six weeks after sustaining a fractured right wrist, the team announced Monday.

Wagner, the younger brother of former Wolverines standout Moritz Wagner, will not need surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.

"While this is an unfortunate situation for Franz, we know he will make his return as soon as he is able," Wolverines head coach Juwan Howard said in a released statement. "We have the finest medical staff and trainers at Michigan so we know he is in good hands."

The 6-foot-8 native of Berlin, Germany, considered one of Michigan's top shooters, could miss as many as the first eight games.

The Wolverines open the 2019-20 season on Nov. 5 against Appalachian State followed by Creighton and Elon. They will also participate in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament and the ACC/Big Ten challenge before the Big Ten opener against Iowa on Dec. 6.
