08:20 AM ET 03.27 | Heading into the Sweet 16, Miami has two very big shoes to fill. Reggie Johnson, a 6-10, 300-pound senior center, sustained a knee injury during the Illinois game Sunday and stayed behind. UM released a statement saying Johnson sustained a "lower extremity injury" against Illinois and his return is uncertain. According to two sources, he underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday, but the school did not confirm that. "Reggie injured himself in the Illinois game, had it evaluated on Monday, went to the doctors [Tuesday] and he will not be with us for the trip," UM coach Jim Larranaga said by phone from the team bus as it headed to the airport. ... Larranaga said he had not spoken with Johnson since Monday night.
