Creighton guard Zierden out indefinitely with ligament damage

Creighton's Isaiah Zierden

OMAHA, Neb. -- Reserve guard Isaiah Zierden of No. 13 Creighton is out indefinitely because of ligament damage in his right knee.

Creighton spokesman Rob Anderson said in a text message Sunday night that X-rays showed no fractures or bone chips in the knee. Zierden injured his medial collateral ligament when he got tied up with a defender in Saturday's 75-69 loss at Xavier. Zierden will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Zierden, who is averaging 3.3 points in 11 minutes per game, has played an increasing role the past month. He had season highs of 13 points and 24 minutes in a win against then-No. 6 Villanova on Feb. 16.
