KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee sophomore guard J.P. Prince had arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder Thursday.
Prince, who transferred to Tennessee in December from Arizona, landed awkwardly on the floor while chasing a ball during practice on Oct. 31. Trainer Chad Newman said he expected Prince to be out for four to six weeks.
Because Prince transferred midseason last year, he won't be eligible to play until the No. 7 Vols play Western Kentucky in Nashville on Dec. 15.
The Memphis native averaged 2.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 31 career games at Arizona. He was the 2005 Tennessee Class 3A Mr. Basketball and led White Station High School to three state championships.
Tennessee opens the season Friday at home against Temple.
