PROVO – BYU announced Wednesday afternoon that senior guard LJ Rose will undergo surgery Friday to repair the meniscus in his right knee.

On Monday, an MRI revealed the torn meniscus prompting the plan for surgery. BYU Head Coach Dave Rose said Tuesday during an interview session with the media that LJ had experienced discomfort in his right knee the last few weeks.

LJ Rose did not participate in Tuesday’s media observed practice.

Rose – one of two seniors on the basketball team – transferred to BYU from Houston. He has started all 25 games this season while averaging 5.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists.

During Rose’s tenure with Houston, he missed time due to multiple foot and ankle injuries restricting his playing time to only two games during the 2015-2016 season.

A timetable for his return to the hardwood will be determined following the surgery.
