VILLANOVA, Pa. -- Villanova senior guard Dwayne Anderson is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his left foot, the team said Friday.

Anderson, a projected starter, averaged 6.5 points last season.

"Dwayne is one of our significant leaders and this is a great loss for our team," Villanova coach Jay Wright said in a statement.

Anderson is the second Villanova player to be injured this month. On Nov. 6, senior forward Shane Clark underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and is expected to miss 3-6 weeks.

Villanova, which is ranked No. 23 in the preseason poll, opens the season Friday night against Albany.
