C Johnson Out 6-8 Weeks

University of Miami senior center Reggie Johnson will be out 6-8 weeks with a left thumb fracture, Coach Jim Larranaga announced Sunday evening.

In seven games this season, Johnson has averaged 12.6 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game for the Hurricanes. He is shooting 42.6 percent from the field and 71.4 percent at the line.

Johnson injured his thumb during a practice before they played Hawaii on December 21st at the Diamond Head Classic Tournament in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Hurricanes went 1-2 without Johnson in that tournament.
