Michigan guard Horton sidelined with knee injury

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) – Michigan guard Daniel Horton is expected to
be sidelined for four weeks because of a knee injury.

Horton sprained his left knee during practice on Sunday and then sat out the
Wolverines’ victory over High Point on Tuesday.

“Based on evaluations, it has been determined that Daniel Horton has a partial
ligament sprain and associated swelling in the knee,” said team physician Dr.
James E. Carpenter. “We anticipate that this ligament will heal, and his
swelling will resolve over the course of the next few weeks. I anticipate that
he will not be released for full activity for approximately one month.”

The 6-foot-3 junior is second on the team in scoring, averaging 11.7 points
per game. He has also averaged 4.3 assists and 3.1 rebounds over seven
contests this season for Michigan (5-3).
