Tennessee head coach Cuonzo Martin had a bit of unfortunate news for local media that attended practice on Wednesday afternoon.
“Jeronne (Maymon) had a minor setback so we probably won’t have him at the start of the season,” Martin said.
Maymon underwent microscopic knee surgery after last season, playing sparingly on the team’s trip to Italy.
If you don’t know, is a preseason second team all-SEC pick after averaging 12.7 points and 8.1 boards last season. He, along with Jarnell Stokes, were supposed to join forces and provide Tennessee with a front court that will allow the Vols to compete with Kentucky, Missouri and Florida at the to of the SEC.
But Maymon hasn’t been practicing, only participating in stretching, conditioning and shooting drills. According to Martin, Maymon’s “obviously not lost for the season” but his conditioning’s not “at the level where he could play a game right now”.
