PROVO, Utah – BYU point guard L.J. Rose is scheduled to have surgery Friday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

The school said a timeline for his return will be decided after the surgery.

Rose has started all 25 games in his first year with the Cougars after transferring from Houston. He leads the team with 4.5 assists per game to go along with 5.5 points and 4.6 rebounds.

BYU has started a three-guard lineup with TJ Haws, Nick Emery and Rose. Haws can play point guard and guard Elijah Bryant could move into the starting lineup.

The Cougars are 17-8 and 8-4 in the West Coast Conference with tough regular-season games remaining against No. 20 Saint Mary’s and No. 1 Gonzaga.
