LSU senior guard Daryl Edwards will miss the remainder of the season, announced Will Wade at today’s media availability.

Wade told the media Edwards underwent heel surgery this morning and they are hoping to utilize a medial redshirt from the NCAA for his return next season. Edwards was averaging 4.4 points and 1.6 rebounds in 2018.

“Hopefully he will be able to get a medical redshirt and we’ll be able to proceed from there,” said Wade on Thursday.

The Tigers have been without him since Dec. 15 vs. Saint Mary’s. Since then, Will Wade and the LSU basketball team have won six consecutive games.
