Dawson will miss Michigan State's next two games

East Lansing, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Michigan State forward Branden Dawson suffered a stable, non-displaced fracture to his left wrist and will miss the team's next two games.

Dawson suffered the injury in No. 25 Michigan State's 66-46 win over Eastern Michigan on Wednesday. He scored his 1,000th-career point earlier in that contest.

The school released details on Dawson's injury Thursday, saying he could be back in action for the start of the Big Ten season.

"I feel bad for Branden, as he's been practicing so well over the last few weeks," said MSU coach Tom Izzo. "But we also feel a bit fortunate when you look at the video from the game -- it certainly could have been worse. BJ has been a quick healer in the past, and we anticipate this being the same."

On the season, Dawson is averaging 10.8 points and a Big Ten-best 8.5 rebounds per game. He will miss games against Texas Southern and The Citadel.
