EUGENE, Oregon -- Oregon freshman point guard Aaron Brooks will be sidelined six to eight weeks with a broken bone in his right wrist, the school announced Monday.

Brooks, who has started all nine games for the Ducks this season, was injured in Sunday's 81-74 loss at UCLA. He underwent X-rays and a CT scan Monday that revealed a fractured right hamate bone. Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.

A 6-foot Seattle native, Brooks is averaging 6.7 points and 2.9 assists per game. His spot in the starting lineup likely will be filled by sophomore Brandon Lincoln, who has averages of 5.8 points and 1.6 assists.
