MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- According to a press release from Kansas State Athletics, senior forward Dean Wade will be out for an undetermined period of time.

Wade sustained an unspecified right foot injury in the second half of the Wildcats' matchup against Georgia State on Saturday. He left the bench for the locker room on crutches.

“Obviously I’m disappointed for Dean and his family,” said head coach Bruce Weber. “He has worked hard to get back from his injury from last season to have a great start to his senior year. I know that he will work equally hard to rehab and come back strong.”

After the game, Weber said he knew "he didn't break anything," and that Wade would receive an MRI on Sunday to judge the severity.

Wade, the Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year, has started all nine games for KSU this season, averaging 13.6 points on 52.2 percent shooting, including 50 percent from 3-point range. He also leads the team in rebounds per game.
