Wisconsin senior forward Mike Breusewitz suffered a laceration to his lower right leg at practice Tuesday reports the UW Sports Medicine Staff.

Following successful surgery Tuesday evening, Breusewitz was released from the hospital and has already begun rehabilitation.

Breusewitz injured his leg by landing awkwardly on the back half of the basket standard while diving out of bounds.

Breusewitz is expected to be out four to six weeks.

A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, Breusewitz has appeared in 98 career games with 49 starts. He's averaged 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds last season.
