Wichita State has been one of the rising power programs in the last half-decade or so under Gregg Marshall and that’s because he finds recruits other people aren’t looking at. Landry Shamet is a prime example of that as he overlooked by most programs, but is primed for a breakout season this year. That was until he suffered a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot.
He suffered the injury while scrimmaging. Shamet said that his right ankle rolled and his foot was stepped on by an opposing player. This is the second foot injury in Shamet’s career and he actually redshirted his freshman season at Wichita State after suffering a compound stress fracture in his left foot.
The point guard shot a ridiculous 43.9 percent from beyond the three-point arc and 47.2 percent from the floor overall last season while averaging 11.4 points, 3.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game. His entire recovery process is supposed to take 12-16 weeks and he is set to have surgery on his foot on Monday.
