AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas will be without leading scorer Andrew Jones for several games because of a fracture in his right wrist.

Jones was injured in late the second half of last week’s win at VCU. The guard is averaging 15.3 points this season for the Longhorns (6-2).

Jones flirted with leaving for the NBA after his freshman season but chose to return for his sophomore year. Coach Shaka Smart on Monday wouldn’t put a timetable on Jones’ return, but the injury is not expected to be season-ending.

Texas hosts Michigan (8-3) Tuesday night.
