Today in Indianapolis, Butler junior small forward Roosevelt Jones finally had his season-ending wrist surgery.

The injury occurred on Butler's Australia trip, which was meant for team-bonding and to play against top competition. Turns out, the worst-case scenario ended up happening with their best player tearing ligaments in his wrist on a layup, four minutes into the 'Dawgs first game overseas.

Brandon Miller, Butler's head coach, was reached for comment today in a media release on Jones' surgery.

"I'm pleased that everything went well with Roosevelt's surgery," said Miller, the man who will have the tough task in replacing Brad Stevens, who bolted for Boston to coach the Celtics. "I know that Rose will do what's necessary to move forward, and I'm looking forward to his full recovery."

Per the media release, Jones has already started the recovery phase after his surgery. Jones will be redshirted, as he makes his season-long recovery.
