BYU forward Stephen Rogers will miss Saturday's big game against Baylor and between two to four weeks while recovering from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Rogers, a versatile 6-foot-8 player off the bench for the Cougars, averages 9.9 points and is a top outside shooter. His loss could mean more time for freshman Damarcus Harrison, who previously averaged 11.1 minutes per game.
BYU is 8-2 and presents a formidable challenge at home against undefeated Baylor, with the Marriott Center sold out for the first time this season.
"That's pretty awesome for us. He's really excited," Hartsock said. "He's a great player. He can really get up and down the court. It's going to take some time for him to get into the system.
"It's a tough game, especially against the sixth-ranked team in the nation as his first game. But he's a good player and he's going to make some good contributions for us this year. He's been really patient and he's worked hard. He's done a great job preparing and keeping himself in shape for this season."
