It isn’t in stone yet, but coach Lorenzo Romar and Tyreese Breshers agreed this morning that the true freshman power forward will likely redshirt this season.

Here’s my story on today’s personnel updates.

Breshers continues to have knee trouble, which is related to surgery that was performed to solve a shin injury. And with Breshers still unable to even practice full-court, and with conference play beginning Saturday, the tentative decision to sit out this season and concentrate on next season has been made.

Meanwhile, we have seen true freshman Elston Turner has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain. However, the early prognosis doesn’t sound as long-term as that injury often implies. Turner will miss the Washington State game on Saturday, but could be back as early as the following week when the Bay Area schools visit Hec Ed.
