Northwestern forward Drew Crawford is done for the season.

Crawford will have surgery on his right shoulder to repair a torn labrum he suffered in September. The senior will seek a medical hardship waiver and attempt to return for a fifth season next year.

“Drew aggravated a previous injury in early September and attempted to play through it,” coach Bill Carmody said in a statement. “It just hasn’t responded as we all would have liked.”

Crawford averaged 13.5 points per game in 10 games this season and was an All-Big Ten third-team selection last year. His 1,418 career points rank 10th in NU history.
