Former BYU guard, Tyler Haws will not be on a basketball floor any time soon thanks to an accident in practice on Monday.
Haws – who is playing with Anwil Wloclawek in Poland – suffered a fractured cheekbone in training, and is expected to miss from 6 to 8 weeks according to reports.
It is a tough blow for Anwil who is currently third place in the PLK with a 12-6 record.
Haws is tied as the team’s third leading scorer averaging 9.9 points a game on 53.3 percent shooting from inside the arc and 90 percent from the charity stripe. He also contributes 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 21.6 minutes a night.
His best showing of the season so far came in an 82-74 loss to Stelmet Zielona Gora when he had a professional career-high 26 points on 10 for 18 shooting from the floor and 5 for 5 from the free-throw line. He added five rebounds and an assist.
It is Haws’ first season with the team after spending his first professional season playing in the ACB in Spain where he averaged 7.9 points on 45.8 percent shooting with 1.3 rebounds in 18.6 minutes a night over 34 games.
