Ashley (foot) had "successful" surgery on Tuesday, the Daily WIldcat reports.

Ashley will attempt to improve his draft stock next season by showing NBA scouts that he is fully healthy, and return to be a key component of the 2015 Arizona squad. He had been projected to be a late first-round pick, but will now have to focus on recovery rather than elevating his game to the professional level. The 19-year-old could actually improve his projected draft position by having a solid season, as he won't have to deal with the current draft that is expected to be loaded with talented prospects.

Ashley, who has been ruled out for the remainder of this season due to a broken foot, is expected to return to school next season, ESPN reports.

Ashley was averaging over 11 points and five rebounds prior to suffering a season-ending injury at California last Saturday. Given that kind of production at age 19 and Ashley's 6-8, 230 pound frame, the power forward was projected to be a late first-round or early second-round pick in this June's NBA Draft. However, now that his sophomore campaign is over, Ashley will focus on his recovery, which will likely prevent him from testing the professional waters. Further, with freshman Aaron Gordon expected to declare for the draft following this season, Ashley could be thrust into a larger role at Arizona next season, potentially boosting his future draft stock.

Ashley (foot) will miss the remainder of the season, according to the Daily Wildcat.

Ashley injured his foot in the opening minutes of Saturday's loss to California, and the results of the x-rays were apparently unfavorable. The sophomore forward had been averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds on the season before suffering the injury, which appears to be a broken foot. The Wildcats will certainly miss their No. 3 scorer and rebounder, as they attempt to bounce back from their first loss of the season.
