Notre Dame forward Luke Harangody will not play in Sunday’s game against St. John’s because of a bone bruise on his right knee, according to men’s basketball spokeswoman Bernadette Cafarelli.
Harangody could also miss Wednesday’s game at Louisville. He will likely be replaced by guard Jonathan Peoples, who started the first eight games of the season, according to Cafarelli.
An MRI performed Friday showed no ligament or cartilage damage.
Harangody injured his knee coming down from an attempted rebound in Thursday’s 90-87 loss at Seton Hall.
The 6-foot-8 senior appeared to walk without much of a limp but practiced walking with crutches as practice began Friday, according to The Associated Press. Harangody did not speak with reporters.
Harangody is third in the nation in scoring, averaging 24.1 points per game.
