UPDATE: According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, Aiken won’t return this season.

Harvard Crimson senior guard and leading point scorer Bryce Aiken remains sidelined with a sprained foot, and is unlikely to play Friday night against the Columbia Lions. Aiken injured his foot on December 21st against the George Washington Colonials and has not played since.

Aiken appeared in seven games before suffering the injury. He was averaging 16.7 points per game, and had put up at least 30 points against the Holy Cross Crusaders and Maryland Terrapins. In his absence, guard Noah Kirkwood and forward Chris Lewis have led the team in scoring, combining for 24.1 points per game on the season.

Harvard (18-7, 7-3) is tied with the Princeton Tigers (12-11, 7-3), one game back of the Yale Bulldogs (20-6, 8-2) in the Ivy League. Harvard is a 7.5-point favorite against last place Columbia (6-20, 1-9) even with Aiken not expected to play.
