Florida State shooting guard Ian Miller will miss at least one week – but possibly more – with a bone bruise on his foot that has not improved.
Miller hurt the foot in the days leading up to the North Florida game on Nov. 21. He did not play against the Ospreys and the injury has clearly affected his jump shot – Miller is just 3 for 15 in the three games since.
“We’re going to have to shut him down for a while,” FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. “I know he won’t be available for a week or so. We’re going to have to evaluate him in 10 days to a week and see where he is.
“There’s not a timetable on that type of rehab. It’s not getting any worse but it’s not getting any better.”
The injury means that Terry Whisnant will see more playing time. Whisnant was averaging 6.3 points and is shooting 48.6 percent from the floor.
Miller was averaging 6.7 points for the Seminoles, who are 4-4 and have a three-game losing streak heading into Sunday’s home game against Maine at 4 p.m.
It’s possible that Miller would miss just one game. FSU’s exam week begins on Monday, and the team does not play again until it hosts Louisiana Monroe on Dec. 17.
