Jaden Akins of Michigan State basketball will miss four weeks after foot surgery

Michigan State Basketball’s Jaden Akins will miss four weeks recovering from surgery for a stress reaction on his left foot.

According to a statement from the school, the second-year guard underwent the procedure on Saturday and it was performed by Dr. Robert B. Anderson in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Michigan State Spartans guard Jaden Akins (3) defends against Maryland Terrapins guard Fatts Russell (4) during second half action of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday, March 10, 2022 in Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

The athletic 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard from Farmington averaged 3.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 0.6 steals in 14.8 minutes per game last season and appears to have a bigger role to play with the departure of the former classmate and escort max. Christie to the NBA. Akins shot 39.4% overall and 38% on 3s, finishing with 20-plus thanks to quick hands and feet on defense.
