According to the Indianapolis Star, Butler forward Andrew Chrabascz will meet with doctors this afternoon after suffering an injury to his hand in last night's 68-65 loss to Villanova.

Sources told Adam Zagoria of earlier that Chrabascz would be out a minimum of 3-6 weeks with a broken finger. Head coach Chris Holtmann confirmed there is an injury to his right hand, but not his finger. Butler officials are unsure how much time, if any, the sophomore will miss, but there is concern the hand is broken.

Chrabascz is developing into a solid offensive weapon for the Bulldogs, averaging 11.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting in all 25 starts for Butler. He injured his hand early in the second half against Villanova but returned to finish with eight points in 33 minutes.

Butler is back on the court Monday night as they travel to Omaha to face Creighton.

UPDATE: Friend of Big East Coast Bias Gary Parrish of CBS Sports was one of the first to have the report that Chrabascz will miss 2-4 weeks with this injury.
