Tough news for local basketball product Siyani Chambers.

The star Harvard guard out of Hopkins High School tore the ACL in his left knee and will miss the 2015-16 season with the Crimson.

According to the Boston Globe, Chambers will "take a voluntary leave of absence during the 2015-16 academic year" and return to the team for the 2016-17 season. He will also complete his degree in sociology.

Chambers would have been a senior captain this season and the top returning scorer (9.9 points, 4.3 assists, 1.5 steals per game last season) for the Crimson.

After winning big school state titles with the Royals in 2010 and 2011 and a third place finish in 2012, Chambers was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year and First Team All-Ivy League in 2013.
