Michigan State F Gavin Schilling Suffers Right Knee Injury, Will Require Surgery

Michigan State basketball has lost one of its key players for an undetermined amount of time.

According to a press release from the program, senior forward Gavin Schilling suffered a "non-contact injury" to his right knee last Friday in practice. He will require surgery, and there's no timetable for when he might return.

A rugged, 6-foot-9, 240-pound interior presence, Schilling averaged 3.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in 24 contests last season, making four starts. He missed the first 11 games of the season after suffering a turf toe injury during exhibition action.

The Spartans are already without another big man, UNLV grad transfer Ben Carter, who injured his left knee earlier this month. There is no timetable for his return either.

With Carter and Schilling out of action, Michigan State will have to rely more on heralded freshmen Miles Bridges and Nick Ward, as well as redshirt sophomore Kenny Goins.
