Notre Dame forward Bonzie Colson fractured his left foot for a second time in Saturday's NIT loss to Penn State, per a new report.

Colson fractured the same foot early in the season and missed 15 games. His absence was the main reason Notre Dame failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament for a fourth-straight year.

Colson returned for the season finale against Pitt and played well in two ACC Tournament games. However, he re-injured himself in the team's final game against the Nittany Lions.

According to The Vertical's Shams Charania, Colson is expected to be healthy for predraft workouts.

Colson is projected as a second-round pick. His shooting touch, rebounding and versatility should entice some teams.

As a senior, he averaged 19.7 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game.

Get well soon, Bonzie.
