Junior guard Jordan Dumars leaves Michigan basketball program
Story updated at 5:57 p.m.
Dumars, the son of current Detroit Pistons president Joe Dumars, came to Michigan as a transfer from South Florida midway through the 2009-10 campaign, but due to injuries, has opted to end his time as a Wolverine.
"Battling injuries the last two years has been very difficult on me," Dumars said in a statement. "I love Michigan, I love this team and I love basketball, however I had to make this decision to move on. I am thankful for the opportunity that was given to me and appreciate all the help I have received. I will always be a Wolverine."
Dumars did not see any game action while at Michigan. He battled both shoulder and knee injuries the past two seasons.
A Michigan spokesman said Monday that Dumars will remain in school, despite not being a member of the basketball squad.
Beilein said the program will miss Dumars, and wished him well.
"Jordan has worked very hard the last two years to get back to the court," Beilein said in a statement. "However, these injuries have not allowed him to play basketball at a level he expects. This has not been easy for him and I know he has thought long and hard about this decision. We will miss Jordan. He is a wonderful young man, with a very bright future."
