Duquesne sophomore guard Micah Mason will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken bone in his right hand, second-year coach Jim Ferry announced Wednesday.

Mason was granted a medical hardship waiver the week before the season opener to gain immediate eligibility after transferring from Drake, and he averaged 8.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game in his first four games as a Duke.

"It's always disappointing when someone gets hurt, but especially Micah with what he's been through," Ferry told The Associated Press.

In his first start, a 70-59 victory against Albany last Wednesday, Mason scored three points and spent most of the game on the bench with foul trouble. He also injured his hand in the first half.

Doctors discovered this week that the injury was a broken hand. Mason is now wearing a cast.

Mason will be replaced in the starting lineup by junior guard Tra'Vaughn White, who started the first three games of the season.
