White suffered ACL injury in offseason workout

POSTED: May 27, 2020 -- 6:44 p.m. CT

This evening, Houston Cougars Men's Basketball Head Coach Kelvin Sampson announced senior forward Fabian White Jr. will miss the 2020-'21 season after suffering a knee injury.

Practicing in a recent workout on his own, White tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which was confirmed by an MRI on Tuesday. White will have surgery later this week.

"I feel badly for Fabian. He had worked really hard to have a great senior season," Sampson said. "Our thoughts are with him and his family; and, we will do all we can to help him recover and have a great senior season in 2021-22."

White will sit out the 2020-21 season as a redshirt while he rehabilitates from the injury and will have one season of eligibility remaining with the start of the 2021-22 campaign.

White was one of only two Cougars to start all 31 games in 2019-20, averaging 9.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.
