Ford is set to undergo surgery on Wednesday, the UW Sports Medicine Staff announced. He is expected to return to the Badgers later in the season.

Ford appeared in all 33 games last season as a redshirt freshman, starting 20. He averaged 5.8 points and 2.8 rebounds, while shooting a team-high 40.9 percent (45-110) from 3-point range.

Wisconsin opens the 2018-19 season with an exhibition against UW-Oshkosh on Friday and will begin the regular season on Nov. 6 against Coppin State.
