WASHINGTON (AP) - Georgetown forward Greg Whittington has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and it's not clear when he'll be able to play basketball.

Georgetown coach John Thompson III says Tuesday that ``there is no specific timetable'' for Whittington's return.

The 6-foot-8 Whittington played in only 13 games last season for the Hoyas before being suspended for academic reasons. He averaged 12.1 points and 7.0 rebounds.

Says Thompson: ``Greg will return when he is 100 percent healthy. I feel for Greg because he's worked extremely hard to prepare for the coming season, on and off the court. I'm confident this is just another setback that in the end will make him even stronger.''
