Arizona guard Brandon Williams to miss 2019-20 season after knee surgery

Arizona sophomore guard Brandon Williams will miss the 2019-20 season as he recovers from knee surgery, the team announced Wednesday.

“The news of Brandon’s season-ending surgery is beyond disheartening,” coach Sean Miller said in a statement (via the Arizona Daily Star). “All of us that comprise Brandon’s Arizona basketball family, as well as our own loyal and passionate fan base, will rally around him and support him as he begins his journey to recovery.”

Williams has dealt with knee issues for more than three years as a result of a joint condition. He had surgery in 2017, forcing him to miss his junior season in high school as he was sidelined for 10 months. He returned to play most of his senior year at Crespi Carmelite High School in Encino, California.

He started having problems with his knee again in January as a freshman with the Wildcats. He bruised it during practice and missed the next four weeks before starting a rehab program in the offseason.
