Arkansas coach Eric Musselman announced before Tuesday night’s game with Auburn that sophomore guard Isaiah Joe will be out indefinitely after have his knee arthroscopically scraped.
“As I mentioned in the press conference Monday, Isaiah did have an MRI on his knee,” Musselman said in a press release. “The results came back late Monday and it was determined Isaiah would undergo surgery Tuesday. He will not be at the Auburn game tonight so he can recover and begin rehabilitation.”
The procedure, termed “arthroscopic debridement surgery” in the press release from the Razorbacks, is a procedure to scrape away scar tissue or similar issues, according to medical professionals.
Joe ranks fourth in the NCAA in 3-pointers made per game (3.60) and 12th nationally in total 3’s made (72).
Joe additionally leads the SEC in both categories while ranking second in the league in 3-point field goal percentage (.340).
The sophomore has made 185 3-pointers in just 54 career games and already ranks seventh on the school’s all-time list.
