IPFW redshirt junior guard Justin Jordan will be out of action for the men’s basketball team until December after tearing his ACL on his left knee Sunday in a pickup game, he confirmed Wednesday.
“I was playing pickup with some of my teammates, and I came down funny and got nudged and my knee went in and out,” Jordan said by phone. “I just found out (Wednesday) that I tore my ACL. They said I will be out until December.”
A transfer from Saint Louis, the 5-foot-9 Jordan averaged 6.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists last season for the Mastodons in 20 games after gaining his eligibility in January.
Jordan, a former North Side standout, was a possible replacement at point guard for the departed Jonny Marlin, who left the program and is going to walk on at Indiana University.
