Ogden • Weber State senior forward Joel Bolomboy will be sidelined indefinitely after suffering a bone bruise in his left knee during the first half of Saturday's 77-74 victory at Northern Arizona.

Bolomboy, the frontrunner for Player of the Year honors in the Big Sky Conference, averages 17.6 points and 13.3 rebounds for the Wildcats.

"Joel … is currently undergoing rehab and there is no timetable for his return," coach Randy Rahe said in a press release.

With two weeks left in the regular season, Weber State shares first place in the conference with Montana. Both teams are 12-2 in league play.

Weber, which is 20-7 overall, has four games remaining before the Big Sky tournament March 9-12 in Reno. The Wildcats play host to Montana State (Thursday) and Montana (Saturday). They visit Idaho (March 3) and Eastern Washington (March 5).

Bolomboy, who is from Fort Worth, Texas, ranks second in the nation in rebounding. He has recorded a double-double in 23 of his 27 games this season, also second-best in the country.

Bolomboy has been projected as a possible pick in this summer's two-round NBA draft.
