Originally written December 09, 2011 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
MILWAUKEE - The No. 11 Marquette Golden Eagles got another dose of bad news Friday when it was announced that freshman Juan Anderson would miss three to four weeks with a shoulder injury. The 6-foot-6 forward suffered the injury Thursday during practice and underwent an MRI Friday morning. "Juan injured his shoulder yesterday in practice," head coach Buzz Williams said. "Because of Juan's work ethic and character, he had worked himself back into a rhythm and flow with our team. We are disappointed by the timing of this, but have full confidence in Juan and our staff that he will be back as soon as he is completely healed." He had appeared in just four games this season for the undefeated Golden Eagles (8-0) due to a three-game suspension issued prior to the season opener for accepting a free ticket to a Brewers playoff game. Anderson scored his first career basket on Dec. 3 in Marquette's 61-54 victory at then-No. 7 Wisconsin. Earlier in the week, Marquette learned it would be without starting center Chris Otule, who suffered an ACL injury Monday night in the Golden Eagles' 79-77 victory over Washington. The severity of that injury, and the amount of time Otule will miss, is still unknown.
