Georgia Tech center Nate Hicks will miss the next 2-3 weeks after having his appendix removed Thursday morning. He is averaging 1.6 points and 2.4 rebounds a game.
The Yellow Jackets will host Maryland on Sunday.
Hicks is having a rough week. He suffered a broken nose in practice on Monday when it was hit by a teammates’ elbow.
In addition, Glen Rice has flu-like symptoms but is expected to play against the Terrapins. Kammeon Holsey was sick last week and wasn’t able to travel to the game at Virginia.
