Gary Bell Jr., a Gonzaga University men's basketball player and Kentridge High graduate, will miss four to six weeks with a broken right hand.

Bell, a junior guard, suffered the injury on his shooting hand in last Saturday's win against Santa Clara. He is averaging 12.7 points for Gonzaga and started in all 13 games.

The Bulldogs (11-2) are ranked No. 21 by USA Today and No. 24 by the Associated Press.

Bell injured the hand in the early moments of Saturday’s game and the initial diagnosis was he was fine and returned to action, according to a Gonzaga media release. However, by the time the game was over there was considerable swelling on the top of the hand and he was sent for X-rays.
