Notre Dame’s star senior Bonzie Colson, who is also a legitimate NBA draft prospect, suffered a fractured left foot in Saturday’s loss to Penn State in the NIT, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.
Notre Dame senior standout Bonzie Colson — an NBA draft prospect — suffered a fractured left foot in the Fighting Irish’s second-round loss to Penn State in the NIT on Saturday, sources told Yahoo Sports.
Colson, 22, fractured the same foot during the season and missed 15 games before returning in late February. Colson is expected to be healthy for team workouts during the predraft process, sources said.
This is the second time this season that Colson has suffered from a fractured left foot. The senior missed 15 games this season after suffering the same injury- a large reason why Notre Dame missed the NCAA Tournament.
Colson is expected to be healthy for most of the pre-draft process, including team workouts. In terms of being a draft prospect, Colson projects as a 2nd-round pick.
Despite missing much of the season, Colson will go down as one of the best players in Notre Dame history. He averaged 19.7 points per game while also notching just over 10 rebounds per game.
