Texas Guard Javan Felix Out Indefinitely

Earlier today, Texas Athletic Trainer Eric Fry released a statement on Twitter stating:

"Javan had a successful procedure on his left hip performed on Tuesday, October 1st. He has begun his rehab process and is expected to make a full recovery. Javan obviously is not practicing with the team at this time. We won't have a specific timetable for his return, but we are looking forward to getting him back."

This is obviously a huge loss for the Texas Basketball Program, one that has struggled the past few seasons, having missed the NCAA Tournament last season, as well as having a losing season for the first time since the 1997-98 season. Felix played a large role in the Texas team last season, what with the sidelining of Myck Kabongo, so he was going to be looked to to help lead the team this year. Now, Felix is sidelined indefinitely from the surgery, and he hopefully will be able to get back out on the court soon.

This is certainly a make-or-break year for Rick Barnes, as his Texas teams have been declining in recent years, as well as the fact that he hasn't been able to recruit Texas very well, which is a huge loss considering the major in-state talent that the Longhorns are losing out on. Barnes is on the hot seat, and every loss like the one experienced with Felix is hurting Barnes chances at a quality season that can keep him in his coaching position for another year.
