 SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -Josh Heytvelt will likely miss the first week of Gonzaga basketball practice with foot pain.
The 6-foot-11 junior center had been reinstated to the team Friday following an eight-month suspension for possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Gonzaga spokesman Oliver Purnell said Friday night that a recent MRI exam showed that the team's leading returning scorer, had a ``hot spot'' on his right foot. Purnell said doctors believe Heytvelt should be able to return within a week.
Heytvelt was eager to start practicing for the first time since early February after completing about 300 hours of community service and passing weekly drug tests in compliance with a court-supervised diversion program,
``Now, with the foot issue, it's going to be a little longer,'' Heytvelt said. ``I've been antsy for nine months.''
The Bulldogs, who won their eighth West Coast Conference tournament title in nine years last season but then lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament to Indiana, began practice Friday night. Another returning starter, forward David Pendergraft is recovering from surgery last month that removed scar tissue from his knee.
Friday afternoon, the university announced the reinstatement of Heytvelt and Theo Davis. Davis is a redshirt freshman who was arrested with Heytvelt in Cheney, Wash., on Feb. 9.
