TCU sophomore guard Jaylen Fisher will undergo surgery next week to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, according to a release from the university.
Fisher suffered the injury during Thursday’s practice. He will not travel with the team to Australia for the Horned Frogs’ foreign tour, which runs Saturday through Aug. 16. However, CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein tweeted that coach Jamie Dixon expects Fisher back by the start of the 2017-18 season.
Jamie Dixon tells me TCU's Jaylen Fisher will be ready to go for the start of the season despite a torn meniscus. 9.9 PPG as freshman.

Fisher, who earned Big 12 Honorable Mention honors as a freshman, started 34 of TCU’s 35 games a year ago, scoring 9.9 points per game. He led Big 12 freshmen with 4.0 assists per game and 54 made 3-pointers. He missed most of the Horned Frogs’ run to an NIT title, suffering a broken left wrist during their first-round game against Fresno State.
