Missouri senior guard Stefhon Hannah was released from a hospital Monday, a day after his jaw was broken in a brawl outside a downtown nightclub in Columbia, Mo.
The Tigers' leading scorer is expected to miss at least four to six weeks and could be out for the rest of the season.
Big 12 South foes that have games remaining with Missouri are Texas A&M (Feb. 9), Oklahoma State (Feb. 26), Baylor at Waco (March 1) and Oklahoma at Norman (March 8).
Hannah was injured outside the Athena nightclub early Sunday morning, just hours after the Tigers returned from a 66-62 victory at Colorado. Hannah told police that he was struck on the head by an unknown object by at least one person whom he could not identify, according to a preliminary police report obtained by The Associated Press.
Tigers coach Mike Anderson said the team still hopes to have Hannah back, but he wasn't certain how long Hanna's recovery would take. .
Hannah leads the Tigers (12-8, 2-3) in scoring (14.7 points) and assists (5.1). A junior college transfer, he also led Missouri in scoring and assists last season.
Hannah is the fifth Tiger player to be involved in off-court violence or misconduct since Anderson was hired less than two years ago.
