Marshall head coach Donnie Jones said Wilkerson suffered a fractured jaw bone during the Wednesday night game against Tulsa in Cam Henderson Center.

Wilkerson is a 6-foot-9 junior from Lexington, Ky.

He is the Thundering Herd season leader in scoring (10.4 per game), rebounding (6.2) and blocked shots (16).
