As St. John's struggles for a victories in a rugged Big East Conference, senior guard Mustapha Heron could be done for the season with an ankle injury, the New York Post reported.
Heron, who has averaged 13.8 points per game, aggravated a pre-existing ankle injury and is now in a walking boot, according to the report. No timetable was given for his return, but he is not likely to come back before the end of the season, which would end his college career.
Heron recently was removed from the starting lineup as head coach Mike Anderson searched for a spark from his bench. The Red Storm are 13-11 on the season and just 2-9 in conference play. Both conference victories have come against DePaul.
Heron played his first two season at Auburn before he transferred to St. John's for the 2017-18 season. He has averaged 15.1 points over 116 college games, 113 as a starter.
He scored 15.8 points per game over his first two seasons at Auburn, with that down to 14.3 points in his two seasons with the Red Storm. He is the second leading scorer for St. John's this season.
