TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama freshman forward Juwan Gary is expected to miss the season with a knee injury.

The school said in a statement Friday that Gary had successful surgery on his right knee Thursday and is expected to make a full recovery.

The four-star prospect is the Crimson Tide’s second newcomer to go down with a preseason injury. Junior college forward James Rojas also sustained a knee injury and is expected to miss the season.

He averaged 25 points last season at Liberty Heights High School in Charlotte, North Carolina.



Alabama is led by first-year coach Nate Oats.
