Taison Chatman to Miss 2024-25 Season with a Knee Injury

The sophomore guard played in 16 games last season as a freshman

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State sophomore guard Taison Chatman suffered a knee injury during a summer workout and following a successful surgery this week, will miss the 2024-25 season.

“I’m incredibly sad for Taison that he’s going to miss the entire year,” head coach Jake Diebler said. “After a tough start to his collegiate career, he worked his way back and played a role for us at the end of last season. He continued that development this spring and was working out really well. I was looking forward to watching him take the next step this year. But I know he’ll work hard and get back to form as soon as he can.”

Chatman, a Minneapolis, Minn., was slowed at the start of his freshman season due to a meniscus injury. That was fully healed and was not a factor in this injury. He appeared in 16 games last season, scoring 15 points and dishing out five assists. He scored his first collegiate points on a jumper at Minnesota in his hometown on Feb. 22. He also hit a three-pointer in four of his final five games of the season.
