The University of Minnesota men's basketball team has lost a forward due to injury.

Head coach Ben Johnson announced junior Isaiah Ihnen suffered a season-ending knee injury this week and will undergo surgery.

"We are obviously disappointed for Isaiah, as he made great strides not only as a player, but also as a leader this summer," Johnson said. "As a valuable member of the team, we will be with him every step of his recovery and can't wait to have him back next year."

Ihnen joins junior Parker Fox as forwards, who are now expected to miss the upcoming season due to injury.
