Grant Gibbs out 4-6 weeks news services

Grant Gibbs
It seemed Creighton's Grant Gibbs' injury would complicate teammate Doug McDermott's player of the year candidacy. But the Bluejays adjusted well against Xavier.

Creighton's Grant Gibbs suffered a dislocated kneecap and will be out four to six weeks, the senior guard told ESPN's Jeff Goodman on Wednesday.

Gibbs suffered the injury while fighting for a rebound during the Bluejays' 81-62 victory against DePaul on Tuesday.

Gibbs is averaging 6.1 points and 4.1 assists per game for Creighton (13-2), which is off to a 3-0 start in the Big East.

Doug McDermott, a two-time consensus All-American averaging 24.3 points per game, expects to play this weekend against Xavier after an MRI revealed a minor left shoulder sprain and a bruised rotator cuff. He also suffered those injuries against DePaul.
