On Monday, Villanova announced that junior forward Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree underwent successful surgery earlier this month on his right shin to remove metallic support hardware that was inserted in previous surgical procedures.
“Dhamir is resting and recuperating well after this elective surgery,” Villanova head coach Jay Wright said in a statement. “This minor surgery should allow him to return to basketball quickly and give him added bounce for his senior season in 2020-21.”
He had screws and a metal plate inserted into his tibia at the beginning of his collegiate career. The injury stemmed from a stress fracture that Cosby-Roundtree dealt with all throughout his senior season at Neumann-Goretti (Pa.). Upon the conclusion of his high school career, he underwent surgery that spring before arriving at Villanova.
This past season, Cosby-Roundtree appeared in 29 games while serving as a captain for the Wildcats in 2019-20, averaging 7.7 minutes, 2.2 rebounds and 1.5 points per game.
“I feel good,” Cosby-Roundtree said. “I’m walking around and just waiting for the stitches to be removed.”
