Matt Shrigley got up after a flagrant foul late in the first half of Friday night’s exhibition against Point Loma Nazarene at Viejas Arena, made two free throws and then was well short on a 3-point attempt on the ensuing possession.

It’s the last shot he’ll take in a game for a while.

The San Diego State redshirt sophomore was pulled at halftime, and X-rays on Saturday revealed what school officials described as a “small fracture” in his left elbow that is expected to sideline him for four weeks. Shrigley, who is right handed, will do nothing for two weeks and be re-evaluated, with the hope that he can begin rehabilitation then.

The 6-foot-7 Shrigley was injured after getting a steal at midcourt and racing to the other end for a breakaway jam. Point Loma Nazarene’s Judd Welfringer, a 6-4, 205-pound junior guard who transferred from Div. I Drake, chased him down and swiped at the ball from behind as Shrigley rose to dunk with two hands.

Shrigley spun and crashed to the floor, landing hard on his elbow and laying on his stomach for several seconds in pain. The game wasn’t on television or streamed on the Internet, but officials were able to review in-house video used for scoreboard replays and determined Welfringer had committed a flagrant foul – two free throws and the ball.
