Trae Golden undergoes surgery for nasal fracture

Tennessee starting point guard Trae Golden underwent surgery this morning at the University of Tennessee Medical Center to correct a minor nasal fracture, according to a UT release.

Golden, a sophomore, suffered the injury in a Dec. 16 practice when he was struck by teammate's elbow.

The surgery was planned by UT (6-6) in advance to not conflict with games or practices.

Golden is expected to play against Chattanooga (5-8) on Monday (TV: 7 p.m., SportSouth) at Thompson-Boling Arena.
