Ann Arbor, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Michigan standout junior guard Caris LeVert will miss the remainder of the season due to a left foot injury.

LeVert hurt the foot during Saturday's 56-54 win over Northwestern. He is scheduled to have surgery in the coming week. It's the same foot LeVert had surgery on this past May.

"Caris has been working so hard this season, and for this to happen is very unfortunate," Michigan coach John Beilein said. "If we know anything about Caris, he will do everything it takes to not only get better but to help his teammates during this time. He is a tremendous young man who I will really miss coaching the remainder of the season. However, I am optimistic he will have a complete recovery."

LeVert has started his last 55 games for the Wolverines and was leading the team in scoring (14.9), rebounding (4.9), assists (3.7), steals (1.7) and minutes (35.8) played.
