Georgetown point guard Chris Wright had surgery to repair the third metacarpal on his non-shooting hand Thursday morning, less than 24 hours after suffering the injury in a loss to Cincinnati.
"Our medical staff is optimistic," Georgetown coach John Thompson said, according to the Washington Post. "We do not have [an] exact timetable ...[but] we expect to have Chris back before [the] end of [the] season."
Wright is averaging 13.1 points and 5.4 assists per game.
The 11th-ranked Hoyas (21-7) play No. 17 Syracuse (23-6) on Saturday afternoon.
