Xavier F Jerome Hunter (medical) sidelined indefinitely

Xavier super senior forward Jerome Hunter has been sidelined from all basketball activities indefinitely with an undisclosed medical issue, the school announced Tuesday.

The 6-foot-7 Hunter averaged 7.8 points and 4.4 rebounds in 37 games (15 starts) for the Musketeers last season.

“Jerome Hunter is dealing with a medical issue that has sidelined him from all on-court basketball activities. Our medical team is working with Jerome to navigate a path for his return to full health. His timeline for a return to basketball will be established at a later time,” the school said in a statement.

Xavier coach Sean Miller followed up with a tweet, saying “we are fully committed to helping Jerome.”

Hunter announced he was returning for the 2023-24 season, his fifth and final, using the extra year given by the NCAA due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He averages 5.5 points in 127 career games (36 starts) at Indiana (2019-21) and Xavier.
