Michigan junior guard Caris Levert will miss the rest of the season after suffering a left foot injury in Saturday's game against Northwestern, according to a release from the school.

"Caris has been working so hard this season, and for this to happen is very unfortunate," said head coach John Beilein. "If we know anything about Caris, he will do everything it takes to not only get better but to help his teammates during this time. He is a tremendous young man who I will really miss coaching the remainder of the season. However, I am optimistic he will have a complete recovery."

"While this is obviously not what I wanted, I know this team will come together and be stronger because of it," said LeVert. "Now more than ever, it is important for all of us support this team. For me, I am familiar with the recovery process and what work lies ahead for me. I am very confident that I will return 100 percent and have already begun work to ensure that happens."

Levert, who injured the same foot prior to the season, is scheduled to have surgery this week and a 12-week recovery period is expected.
