Dominic Artis Injury: Ducks Point Guard Out Indefinitely With Foot Injury

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Artis was seen with a walking boot and will miss Saturday's game with Washington, although a source indicates Artis will be back at some point this season.

Bad news for the Oregon Ducks men's basketball team as point guard Dominic Artis is out indefinitely with a foot injury of undetermined severity. According to the Register-Guard, Artis was seeing wearing a protective boot. While head coach Dana Altman was unavailable to the media on Friday, the Guard's source indicated that Artis was likely to play again this season.

This is obviously a huge loss for Oregon, as Artis ran the team like a veteran, averaging 10.2 points and 3.8 assits. Johnathan Loyd now becomes the starting point guard, and he is a big drop off from Artis, with averages of 2.8 points and 2.2 assists while being a subpar shooter. Willie Moore, who has played only five minutes in Pac-12 play, should enter the rotation for Oregon.

Oregon takes on Washington at home today at 4:00 p.m., then goes on the Bay Area road trip. While the team is leading the Pac-12, having already beaten Arizona and UCLA, this injury puts a big damper on Oregon's Pac-12 title hopes. Loyd is going to have to step up in a big way.
