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.
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.
