Franz Wagner to miss 4-6 weeks with wrist injury

Michigan freshman wing Franz Wagner will be sidelined for the next four-to-six weeks. Wagner suffered a non-surgical fracture to his right wrist and is expected to make a full recovery, per a statement by the University of Michigan.

“While this is an unfortunate situation for Franz, we know he will make his return as soon as he is able,” Juwan Howard said in a statement. “We have the finest medical staff and trainers at Michigan so we know he is in good hands.”

Michigan sophomore forward Brandon Johns Jr. is also recovering from an ankle sprain, per the Michigan Daily.

The Wolverines play a secret scrimmage on Thursday against Detroit and have their exhibition opener on November 1st. The 2019-20 season tips off on November 5th. Michigan will face Creighton (November 12th) in the early season along with the Battle 4 Atlantis from November 27th through 29th.

    Looks like I picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue.

    Saw 14 new messages in the Franz injury thread and I thought for sure I missed an update on his return date, but alas it was just some Nunez discussion.

    Based on martellis comments this morning, it sounds like Wagner has started to practice and shoot a bit but they are waiting for him to get full rotation on his jump shot before bringing him back.

    Looked like he was shaking hands with teammates during 2nd half warmups. He grabbed a ball under the basket and tossed it out with his right hand with some authority. He wasn’t favoring it or using his left.

    FYI, this is not mine. I copied and pasted. So I borrowed it for my friends at UMHOOPS!

    Haha! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
