This isn’t the news that the Michigan State Spartans wanted to hear.
Senior Joshua Langford won’t suit up for the 2019-20 season after undergoing a second surgery to repair a stress reaction in his foot.
Langford had originally injured his foot in December of 2018 during a game against Illinois, and didn’t play the rest of the season. He was scheduled to be re-evaluated in January, but underwent surgery after being evaluated in New York earlier this week.
“It was a very successful surgery,” Izzo said Thursday after practice. “I talked to his dad and everybody else – very positive. Some of the things that happened the last time, but they took it to another level as far as getting blood flowing to that bone in his foot. … So what does that mean for his future? I think there was a worry that he may never play basketball again. I think that is more gone.”
For fellow senior Cassius Winston, it’s tough seeing a teammate go down.
“It’s tough, just with what he means to the team and the program, what kind of kid he is,” Winston explained. “It’s tough to see a break like that in a couple seasons. He’s put his all into his game and this program.”
