The UW medical staff confirms that center Artem Wallace suffered a torn ACL and lateral bone contusions last Wednesday in the CBI game against Valparaiso.
He is expected to undergo surgery on April 8. The UW trainer says the normal recovery time after the surgery is between six and nine months. That means that he may — or may not — be ready when the Huskies return for preseason camp in October.
In the just-completed season, Wallace played in 31 games, including 25 starts. He averaged 3.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in an average of 14.2 minutes per game.
