DaJuan Coleman will miss the rest of the season due to a left leg injury that will require surgery.
"This is a tremendous disappointment, especially considering the amount of hard work DaJuan has been putting in with our basketball team," Boeheim said in a release issued by the school. "We will certainly miss his contributions."
Coleman started the first 12 games of the season, but has played just nine minutes since Dec. 20 due to nagging knee problems.
Boeheim could elect to give increased minutes to defensive-minded big men Rakeem Christmas and Baye-Moussa Keita
