ANN ARBOR, Mich. — University of Michigan men’s basketball head coach John Beilein announced today (Wednesday, August 6) freshman forward D.J. Wilson (Sacramento, Calif./Capital Christian School) underwent successful surgery on his right pinky finger and will miss 4-6 weeks for recovery.

 

“This is an unfortunate injury for D.J.,” said Beilein. “However, we have the best training and medical staff here at U-M, so we know he is in good hands. We anticipate a speedy recovery so D.J. will be back and at 100 percent when we start our September workouts.”

 

Wilson, who will still travel with U-M to Italy on Aug. 15-24, averaged 13.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game last season at Capital Christian School. He guided the Cougars to a 28-4 record, 10-0 Golden Empire League and a final No. 3 state ranking.
