An already young Memphis team will be without one of its veterans for the next five weeks, as forward Wesley Witherspoon is undergoing surgery this morning.
Witherspoon suffered a meniscal tear in his right knee on Nov. 17, but has played through the pain.
“He hasn’t practiced in two and a half weeks,” head coach Josh Pastner told Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com.
The 6-foot-7 junior is averaging 13.0 points and 4.6 rebounds this season, but will miss games against Georgetown and Tennessee.
