Georgetown Hoyas forward Paul White underwent surgery today, per his own Twitter page. There has been no public confirmation from the program, but he will likely be out for the season after re-aggravating the hip injury that had been bothering him all season, according to Gene Wang of the Washington Post. The surgery was reportedly an abdominal pelvic floor procedure.
White does not qualify for redshirt eligibility, but per our sister outlet Big East Coast Bias, White should qualify for a hardship waiver to avoid losing a year of eligibility.
The sophomore had been limited to just seven appearances and 67 total minutes this season, in large part due to the injury and was averaging 1.6 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists this season. In his freshman campaign, the Chicago product averaged five points and 2.8 rebounds while playing 18 minutes per game. Assuming the NCAA approves the hardship waiver, White should still have three more years of eligibility.
This post will be updated with more information in the event more comes along.
