Virginia's DeAndre Hunter to Miss NCAA Tournament After Suffering Wrist Injury

The Cavaliers announced Tuesday, they have lost freshman guard De'Andre Hunter for the season with a broken wrist, meaning he will not be able to participate in March Madness.

Hunter appeared in all 33 games for Virginia this season, averaging 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists en route to winning the ACC's Sixth Man of the Year award. He will have surgery Monday and miss 10 to 12 weeks. Hunter's broken wrist also means U.Va. will head into its third NCAA tournament in the last four seasons while dealing with a significant injury.

Virginia won't have much time to figure out how to play without Hunter as the Cavaliers open NCAA tournament play on Friday night against 16th-seeded UMBC. The 6-foot-7 redshirt freshman averaged 12.3 points per game since January 3, scoring both from the low block and from behind the arc. U.Va. scored five points in the final 0.9 seconds to get the improbable win.

Young also recorded the movie's entire soundtrack along with his band the Promise Of The Real , as Pitchfork reports . Paradox will have its world premiere at SXSW on March 15, and launch worldwide on Netflix on March 23.

The injury likely will shorten the Cavs' rotation to seven players, but more importantly takes away a valuable offensive weapon for a team that relies on slowing down the game and grinding teams down with their "Pack Line" defense rather than outscoring their opponents.

Guard Marco Anthony got a chance to shine January 31 in a rare big role off the bench when Johnson was serving the first game of a three-game suspension.
