DJ Harvey is the latest Notre Dame basketball player to go down for an extended period of time with an injury.

DJ Harvey becomes the third major Notre Dame rotation player that will miss extended time due to injury this season.

Early this month, star forward Bonzie Colson, one of the nation's top upperclassmen, went down with a fractured foot.

That injury could keep him out until March.

Senior guard Matt Farrell, Notre Dame's top backcourt player, missed three games with an ankle injury before returning on Tuesday.

Notre Dame was 1-2 in his absence, and dropped last night's double overtime game with Louisville, 82-78.

Now Harvey, a freshman guard that plays over 18 minutes per game, will be out for a month. He played seven minutes against the Cardinals before going down with an injury.

On Twitter, Harvey announced that he suffered a bone bruise in his left knee.

Harvey finished with three points, two rebounds, and a steal before leaving Tuesday night's game.

On the season, the Maryland native averages 5.8 points and 2.9 rebounds for the Fighting Irish. He is just one of just five players to appear in all 19 of Notre Dame's games this season.

Notre Dame is 13-6 overall, but 3-3 in ACC play, and currently on a three-game slide. The Fighting Irish travel to No. 20 Clemson on Saturday afternoon. That game is set to tip off at 4 p.m. ET.
