CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami Hurricanes senior center Reggie Johnson will miss much of the Atlantic Coast Conference season with a broken left thumb.

Coach Jim Larranaga says Johnson is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks.

A starter since his sophomore season, Johnson already has missed four games. He has played in seven games and is averaging 12.6 points and 10.1 rebounds.

The Hurricanes (8-3) host LaSalle on Wednesday and open ACC play Saturday at Georgia Tech.
