After suffering a broken bone in his right foot prior to the season, junior guard Andrew Warren has decided to apply for a medical red-shirt at the end of the year and gain an extra season of eligibility.
Warren suffered a broken foot prior to the start of the year, which was a major setback in his preparation for the season.
He was able to make it back for the team’s final exhibition game, but he then suffered another injury to his foot that has kept him on the bench all season.
Warren was trying to make it back for the season opener when he suffered another injury that was diagnosed as a likely microfracture near an inserted screw from the previous surgery, according to the Journal Star.
Warren led the Braves in scoring last season, averaging 13.2 points per game.
Although the loss may hurt the team, it has allowed other players the chance to develop and Warren’s return next season could help the depth of the Braves.
A red-shirt cannot be applied for until after the season, but there should not be any hold-ups in Warren’s case because he was unable to take the floor in any regular season games.
