The Wildcats' bad news turned to worse Saturday night, when Arizona announced that forward Kevin Parrom will miss the rest of the season with a broken bone in his right foot.

Parrom, who suffered the injury near the end of the first half of the Wildcats' 69-67 loss to Washington, will undergo surgery for the broken bone.

A UA statement said the injury was not related to any previous injuries, even though Parrom suffered extensive nerve and tissue damage to his lower right leg when he was shot in September.

Parrom, who had just begun to approach his productivity of last season after the shooting, was not on the team bench during the first eight minutes of the second half while he was evaluated.

In his postgame interview, two hours before UA made the announcement, coach Sean Miller said he was hopeful Parrom's injury was just more nerve pain related to the gunshot wound.

"He had a lot of nerve pain," Miller said.

"He got hit either in the leg or the foot and the fact that he's confused on whether it's his leg or foot kind of shows you that it triggered off a lot of the symptoms that he's had since he was shot this fall."
