Wisconsin freshman guard Kobe King suffered an injury to his left knee and will undergo season-ending surgery today (Monday).
King, who appeared in each of the first 10 games this season, will be eligible to apply for a medical hardship waiver after the season. If granted, the La Crosse native will return as a redshirt freshman for the 2018-19 season.
King was averaging 19 minutes and 5.2 points per game, including a career-high 10 points against Ohio State on December 2.
Teammate D’Mitrik Trice is also undergoing surgery on his right foot today. UW said his initial rehab process will begin in 2-3 weeks.
