Vanderbilt guard Darius Garland will be out for the rest of the season with a meniscus injury, the school announced Tuesday.

The freshman, who some had considered a potential lottery pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, suffered the injury in Vanderbilt's Nov. 23 game against Kent State. According to coach Bryce Drew, Garland has already had surgery.

"Darius had a very successful surgery, and will be better than ever when he returns," Drew said. "Unfortunately, he will be out for the remainder of this season."
