University of Louisville freshman Wayne Blackshear will miss the 2011-12 season after suffering a shoulder injury in practice.

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test performed at Jewish Hospital in Louisville points to a torn labrum in his right shoulder, which will require surgery to repair. With an expected recovery time of at least four months, Blackshear will effectively miss the entire season.

A 6-5 McDonald’s High School All-American from Chicago, Blackshear had just been cleared by the NCAA initial eligibility center to participate as a freshman a week ago. He had suffered an injury to his left shoulder as he closed out his high school career, had surgery to repair it, and had spent the summer rehabilitating that shoulder. He averaged 32.6 points, 14.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 3.7 steals as a senior for Morgan Park High School last season.
