Virginia guard Elijah Gertrude will miss the 2024-25 season after injuring his right knee in a scooter accident.

The 6-foot-4 sophomore had the accident on April 30 and underwent surgery on May 17, coach Tony Bennett said Friday.

A four-star recruit from Jersey City, N.J., Gertrude averaged 3.4 points in 16 games for the Cavaliers in 2023-24.

"He had a solid first season on Grounds and was off to a terrific start in our offseason workouts," Bennett said. "Elijah's surgery went well and he is already working hard on his rehabilitation."
