IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa senior forward Dale Jones suffered a fracture in his right wrist in Thursday’s game against Seton Hall and is expected to miss approximately 8-9 weeks. The announcement came Sunday from Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery.
After missing the first two games this season, Jones sustained the injury minutes after making his season debut against Seton Hall.
“All of us feel for Dale, as this is another unfortunate setback in his collegiate career,” said McCaffery. “Dale has demonstrated a tremendous amount of dedication and perseverance returning from two previous season-ending knee injuries. Dale has the support of his teammates and coaches, and we are certain he will have an impact on this team later this season.”
Jones, who transferred to Iowa in 2015 after three years at Tyler Junior College in Texas, has played limited minutes in only seven games during his Hawkeye career. Jones suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice on Dec. 1, 2015, after competing in Iowa’s first six games. The native of Waterloo, Iowa, suffered his first knee injury in 2014.
Iowa hosts UT Rio Grande Valley today at 4:35 p.m. (CT) on Mediacom Court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
