Per Providence College:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College men's basketball Head Coach Ed Cooley announced today that sophomore Kris Dunn (New London, Conn.) will have surgery in the next several weeks to repair an injured shoulder and he will miss the remainder of the season. Dunn injured his shoulder during the team's exhibition game on November 2 versus Rhode Island College.

Dunn, who is a sophomore, missed the first three games after the injury and then returned and played in four games before determining that the injury was too severe to continue playing this season.

The athletic department will apply for a medical hardship waiver with the BIG EAST Conference office in order to get back Dunn's season of eligibility. If approved, Dunn will have three years of eligibility remaining, beginning with the 2014-15 season.

Dunn missed the first nine games of his freshman season after having surgery on his shoulder in July of 2012. In 25 games last season, Dunn averaged 5.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game.

"We are looking forward to assisting Kris as he recovers from his surgery," Cooley said. "His health and well-being are our primary concern. There is no question that he will rebound from this and continue to improve as a basketball player. We are confident that Kris will be a key member of our team in 2014-15."
