Junior forward out with ankle injury
Junior transfer forward Kevin Hamlet is not expected to play in the Central Michigan men's basketball game against CSU Bakersfield on Nov. 15.
The 6-foot-7 forward was not dressed and did not play in the season opener against Concordia on Nov. 6 or on Nov. 9 against Chicago State. Coming into the season, head coach Keno Davis said he was expected to compete for minutes in a rotation with the other big men.
"I don't believe he will be ready," Davis said. "I haven't got any official words but I would say he is unlikely to play."
Davis mentioned after the Chippewas 98-67 victory over Concordia that Hamlet had rolled his ankle in practice a few days before.
Hamlet averaged 8.3 points and 4.8 rebounds in 31 minutes per game last season with Mineral Area College. He did play in the 2018-19 Maroon and Gold game.
Davis gave no timetable for Hamlet's return.
The Chippewas are off to a 2-0 start to the 2018 season without Hamlet. Their latest win over Chicago State earned Davis' 100th win at CMU.
