Killian Tillie hasn’t had any luck during his junior NCAA season. Gonzaga’s forward suffered a partially torn plantar fascia. No timetable has been set yet, but he might return in time for tournament play.

The 20-year-old missed the first two months of the 2018-19 campaign after having surgery to repair a stress fracture in his ankle. He averaged 6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.9 blocks and 0.8 steals up to his latest injury.

Gonzaga is currently ranked fourth in the NCAA and sits in first place of the West Coast Conference. The Bulldogs are considered contenders for the Final Four and will furthermore strengthen their position with Tillie ready to go.
