The injury occurred during the first half of the WVU’s 73-51 victory over Northeastern on Dec. 29.

“Everyone associated with Mountaineer basketball is saddened by the news that we received on Isaiah,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said. “Isaiah is a great teammate, a wonderful kid and a hard worker who will do everything asked of him to get back to 100 percent and back on the court.”

Cottrell, a 6-foot-10 forward from Las Vegas, has played in all 10 games so far this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.4 rebounds per game.
