BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Indiana backup guard Maurice Creek is out again.

The Hoosiers (9-1) said Wednesday that Creek will be out indefinitely after sustaining an undisclosed injury to his right foot injury during Sunday's practice.

Creek missed half of his freshman season with a dislocated left kneecap, half of his second season with a stress fracture in his right kneecap and all of last season after slipping on the stairs and tearing the Achilles tendon in his left leg. He redshirted last year.

Coach Tom Crean says he's hoping the latest injury is only a temporary setback. Creek is averaging 3.0 points and 1.6 rebounds this season.

No. 6 Indiana also has added walk-on Paul Bayt of Carmel, Ind., to the roster. He spent the first semester at Manhattan College.
