It’s been reported that Tres Tinkle has suffered a broken wrist on his non-shooting hand. He suffered the injury in the Beavers loss to Fresno State (63-58) on Friday evening. Tres Tinkle will have a CT scan on Monday to determine whether the injury will require surgery. Wayne Tinkle told reporters the initial timeline was four to six weeks, but he expects to know more following the scan.
This injury comes in the midst of a four game losing streak, as the Beavers are searching for an identity. Tres Tinkle is currently the teams leading scorer, rebounder and assist-man. In the loss to Fresno State Tres recorded a career-high in points (31) and also added 10 rebounds, along with 6 steals.
Oregon State has been without a number of players this season. Tres Tinkle is just the latest casualty. They’ve also been without starting guard Stephen Thompson Jr. for the last five games as he battles a left foot injury. Freshman power forward Ben Koné has yet to play while rehabbing from an ACL tear and Keondre Dew has missed the last two games due to an indefinite suspension.
The Beavers will be back in action Thursday, December 1st, at Mississippi State.
