Missouri State freshman guard Dorrian Williams (Oklahoma City, Okla.) will undergo surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum and is expected to miss the upcoming season, head coach Paul Lusk announced Monday (Oct. 3).
"It's unfortunate that he'll have to miss the season," Lusk said. "He has been doing a great job in the preseason and learning our system. We'll redshirt Dorrian this year, and he'll be even stronger next season."
According to MSU Athletic Medical and Rehabilitation Services, the typical recovery time from this type of surgery is 3-6 months.
The Oklahoma 4A all-state point guard from Douglass High helped coach Terry Long's team to back-to-back state titles and a 54-4 combined record over the last two seasons.
