The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team received some unfortunate injury news.
Guard Symir Torrence suffered a sprained ligament in his right knee during Saturday’s game against Duke.
Head coach Jim Boeheim said Monday during the ACC teleconference that Torrence is “probably not going to play this week.” That means he will miss at least two games as Syracuse plays at Pittsburgh on Tuesday night and at home against Wake Forest on Saturday night.
The 6-foot-3 junior has seen increased playing time as of late, seeing double-digit minutes on the floor over the past four games. That includes a season-high 25 minutes against Duke. During that four-game stretch, Torrence has shot 8-15 from the floor with 13 assists
With Torrence out, Boeheim said Cole Swider will get the first look at the backup two-guard. The head coach also said that Paddy Casey could be an option.
