TCU's senior leader has yet to play in a Big XII game this season and he could be out even longer.

Head coach Jamie Dixon told reporters Monday than senior guard Jaylen Fisher will be out for the "foreseeable future" with swelling in his right knee. According to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Fisher didn't make the trip for the team's game in Norman, Oklahoma this weekend. He's been out since the new year began and even missed the start of the season to recover from knee surgery from an injury he suffered last season.

Per Davison, Fisher would be eligible for a medical redshirt to return for a sixth season if he doesn't return this year.

Fisher was averaging 12.1 points per game and 2.7 assists in just under 25 minutes per game this season. 

Update 1/17: TCU announced Fisher will miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season and won't return to TCU, despite being eligible for a medical redshirt. Jeff Goodman of Stadium reports that Fisher will seek transfer.
