Michigan State senior forward Gavin Schilling suffered a non-contact injury to his right knee last Friday and the team has determined he will need surgery, the Spartans announced Wednesday.
There is no timetable for his return.
“This is certainly an unfortunate setback for Gavin, as he had been practicing well,” Spartans coach Tom Izzo said. “He had an incredible summer and was in excellent shape as he was ready to make his senior season his best one yet.”

The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Schilling played in 24 games last season, averaging 3.8 points per game and 3.1 rebounds per game. He missed the first 11 games of the season because of a turf-toe injury.
Earlier this month, Michigan State announced Ben Carter will be out for “an extended period of time” because of a knee injury. The injury requires surgery. Carter is a transfer from UNLV.
