    HARTFORD — UConn big man Donovan Clingan will miss Saturday’s game against St. John’s and is out 3-4 weeks with an injury to a tendon in his right foot, the school announced.

    The 7-foot-2 sophomore left the second half of No. 5 UConn’s 75-60 loss to Seton Hall on Wednesday with a foot injury.

    He underwent an MRI on Friday and the school was awaiting results.

    “He didn’t have a ton of swelling, but he did have some pain,” UConn coach Dan Hurley said Friday. “He obviously wanted to go back in [on Wednesday] and then it tightened up on him. We’ll see how he feels in the morning and then get the MRI scans.”

    A projected lottery pick in 2024, Clingan missed a month ahead of the season with a strain in the same foot but returned for opening night. Hurley said the two injuries are not related.

    For the season, Clingan is averaging 13.9 points and 6.3 rebounds.

    UConn will be looking to extend its seven-game home winning streak on Saturday, which includes a 6-0 record this season.
