INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Georgetown forward Jabril Trawick is out indefinitely after he broke his jaw in a loss at Providence on Wednesday.
Trawick has started all 14 games for the Hoyas and is averaging 7.1 points, 2.5 rebounds with 1.6 assists. He was averaging 8.5 points in the four games before his injury.
"It's a tough blow for our team because of the presence that Jabril provides for us," Thompson said in a statement. "We're hoping to have him back on the court as soon as he is cleared to play and in the meantime, some of our guys will have to step up in his place."
The Hoyas are without two of their starters as center Joshua Smith missed Wednesday's game and did not travel for Saturday's game at Butler.
Reggie Cameron and Mikael Hopkins replaced Trawick and Smith against the Bulldogs.
