BY foxsports • February 1, 2011

St. John's forward Justin Brownlee has fractured his left thumb, but is not expected to miss any time.

The senior was injured in the second half of the Red Storm's 93-78 upset of then-No. 3 Duke on Sunday. St. John's coach Steve Lavin says Brownlee was treated Monday.

Brownlee collided with a Duke player but stayed in the game. He finished with 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting and had nine rebounds, six assists and a steal.

X-rays revealed a nondisplaced hairline fracture. His thumb was fitted with a fiberglass splint, and he has been cleared for practices and games.
