GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -If Florida started the season now, guard Nimrod Tishman and forward Adam Allen wouldn't be able to play.
Coach Billy Donovan says Tishman, a 6-foot-5 freshman from Tel Aviv, Israel, has been cleared by the NCAA to practice but not to play. Allen, a 6-8 sophomore from Milton, doesn't anticipate playing this season because of a nagging knee injury.
Donovan went overseas to recruit Tishman as a replacement for guard Nick Calathes, who left after his sophomore season to play professionally in Greece. Donovan says he expects Tishman to get NCAA clearance, but he doesn't expect him to contribute much this season.
Allen has scar tissue behind his kneecap, causing pain whenever he puts pressure on his knee. He had two operations, but neither fixed the problem.
