Michigan Wolverines’ point guard Jaelin Llewellyn suffered a torn ACL during Sunday’s loss to Kentucky and, as a result, will miss the rest of the season, according to an official team announcement issued this week.
Llewellyn is expected to undergo surgery in early January 2023.
“Although this is not how I imagined my season here at Michigan would end, the support and love from everyone in the program will help me get through the rehab process,” Llewellyn said, via ESPN’s Jeff Borzello. “I’m looking forward to being my teammates’ biggest supporter for the rest of the season. Go Blue!”
“We are devastated for Jaelin,” Michigan coach Juwan Howard said. “He worked so hard after joining us this summer and was making that next step in leading this team. His maturity and work ethic has already made a mark on our program and culture. Knowing him, this setback will only serve as an opportunity to grow as a person and player, but more importantly, offer himself a chance to help this program in any way he can. I admire that.”
Llewellyn transferred from Princeton last spring.
