Wichita State point guard Landry Shamet, a potential All-American this upcoming season, has a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot and will need 12-16 weeks for full recovery. Shamet was injured July 21 while scrimmaging at the Under Armour All-America Camp in Philadelphia. His right ankle rolled and his foot was stepped on by an opposing player, Shamet said. Over the next few days, discomfort in the foot lingered. This is the second foot injury of Shamet's career. He redshirted his freshman season at Wichita State after suffering a compound stress fracture in his left foot. "I think, based on my X-Rays and MRIs, it's new, but when I rolled my ankle I enflamed it and aggravated it, which led to more discomfort," Shamet said to CBS Sports. "Knowing what I had gone through with my other foot, I knew the symptoms. It felt like the early onset of the last situation. I kind of debated in my head letting it play out, see how it feels, but I decided to get it looked at." Shamet saw a doctor Thursday, met with a surgeon Friday, and will have surgery in Wichita on Monday. He'll be in a hard split for two weeks, then transition to a non-weight-bearing boot. He's expected to be on crutches for 6-8 weeks.
