Georgia Tech announced Tuesday that sophomore Jason Morris will be sidelined for the next six-to-eight weeks after undergoing surgery for a broken big right toe suffered in a pickup game last month.
"The most important thing is to get him healthy now so that when we start workouts in September, he’ll be ready to go," said first-year coach Brian Gregory. "Jason had a great spring and a great summer, and he’ll overcome this challenge."
Morris played in every game and started the final five of his freshman season.
The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 6.0 points and 2.2 rebounds.
He shot 40 percent from 3-point range.
