TCU Horned Frogs guard Mike Miles Jr. has an uncertain timetable for his return after suffering a hyperextended knee. The good news for the program and its leading scorer is that he avoided tearing his ACL or MCL. Miles suffered the injury early in the team’s 81-74 overtime loss to the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Head Coach Jamie Dixon has already ruled out the guard for the team’s matchup against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Tuesday night. The team has also played two games without their leading rebounder Eddie Lampkin Jr.

This season with the TCU Horned Frogs, Mike Miles Jr. is averaging 18.1 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.4 steals per game. He has paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 53.2 percent and a three-point percentage of 31.3 percent. Miles was named the Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year for a reason and is in the running for the award to close out the season. The team will need him in March but could struggle in the games without him. Miles is a top player in the Big 12 and a vital member of the Horned Frogs.
When asked about the injury and the potential timetable, Head Coach Jamie Dixon said the following: “I don’t anticipate him being out as long as others have been.” This does appear to be good news overall and him avoiding injuring his MCL and ACL is very good news. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Mike Miles Jr. the best in his recovery and eventual return to the basketball court.
