Borgen was considered day-to-day as of Sunday, according to head coach Ralph Krueger, after suffering what they called an upper-body injury. He played in the team's last four games after multiple players were dealing with COVID issues.
The news comes a day after the team announced Jake McCabe would miss significant time after suffering several knee injuries.
