Sophomore center Logan Duncomb had surgery last week, availability this season uncertain

Indiana sophomore center Logan Duncomb had surgery last week to address a major sinus infection, The Daily Hoosier can confirm.

Tyler Tachman reported the news first for the Indy Star on Monday afternoon.

It is unknown whether Duncomb will return for game action this season.  He has not played since Jan. 14.

The 6-foot-9 sophomore has not been a part of Indiana’s main rotation this season.  He is averaging 2.9 points in nine appearances.  Duncomb has played an average of 5.7 minutes in those contests.  He produced 10 points and five rebounds in 17 minutes in a game against Elon in December.

Duncomb has been described by IU as having a “non-COVID illness” prior to each of the last six games.  Head coach Mike Woodson said two weeks ago Duncomb had a “major sinus infection.”

Since he had surgery and has only played in nine games, it is conceivable Duncomb could qualify for a medical redshirt.

The Cincinnati, Ohio product also appeared in nine games last season while dealing with multiple bouts of illness.
