Llewellyn has started in all 84 games of his college career. The 6-foot-2 guard has scored 1,120 points, 316 rebounds and 212 assists. More so, his leadership for head coach Juwan Howard will be missed. Llewellyan is expected to begin rehabbing immediately and will have surgery in early January.
Michigan is currently 5-3 this season, including two tough losses to Kentucky (73-69) and Virginia (70-68) over their last two outings. The team has been led by center Hunter Dickinson (19.6 ppg) and guard Jett Howard (15.3 ppg). Still, the absence of Llewellyn will need to be replaced.
