Starting point guard Alex Abreu suffered a sprained ankle when he landed on a teammates foot after taking a shot during practice. Hes currently moving around on crutches and is expected to miss the teams first two exhibition game, coach Keith Dambrot said.





Were hoping to get him back for the first regular season game, but I dont know, he said. I look at it long term it will help us, short term it hurts us.





It will allow 5-foot-11 freshman point guard Carmelo Betancourt among others to get some playing time, Dambrot said.
