EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State redshirt freshman forward Kenny Goins is expected to miss six weeks due to a sports hernia injury.

The school says Wednesday in a release that surgery to repair the hernia was successful.

The 6-foot-6 Goins joined the Spartans as a walk-on before the 2014-15 season.

Goins is from Troy in suburban Detroit.
