NC State has announced that redshirt junior guard Thomas Allen will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season with a left ankle injury.
Allen has missed the last four games for the Wolfpack — all wins for NC State.
Thomas Allen to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

During his first season of eligibility after transferring in from Nebraska, Allen appeared in 17 games. The 6-foot-1 guard made 15 starts, while also averaging 7.4 points and 1.4 steals per game. Allen is a strong 3-point shooter, too: shooting 37.9 percent on attempts from downtown.
Kevin Keatts on Allen:
We’ll always do the right thing for our players. After consulting with our doctors, I think shutting down Thomas for the rest of the season is the right decision. Thomas was injured in practice a few weeks ago and his ankle just hasn’t healed enough to play him. We’re at the point now where we need to keep him off his feet and in a few weeks, we’ll re-evaluate and decide on what the next steps are.
