UVA’s Anderson out indefinitely after appendectomy

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Justin Anderson had planned to return from a broken hand and surgery Saturday at Louisville, but his return will have to wait.

Doctors removed the junior guard’s appendix Wednesday. He will not play Saturday at Louisville, and his status for next week’s ACC Tournament, which runs Tuesday through Saturday, is also in doubt.

Here’s more information from the University of Virginia Sports Information Department:
