Few teams have as many injuries.

Chane Behanan the latest, reportedly with a high ankle sprain that makes him unavailable for the next 10 days. If so, he will miss the University of Louisville basketball game against Seton Hall, South Florida, and UConn, and possibly Syracuse.

The injury is similar to one that plagued Peyton Siva most of last season, improving only in time for post-season play and the run that led to the Final Four appearance.

Fortunately, UofL has a solid backup in Montrezl Harrell at the power forward position, one whose play up has inspired confidence. He’s averaging 6.6 point and 4.4 rebounds per game. There’s also Stephan Van Treese, who should be well rested after seeing no action against Kentucky and playing only four minutes in the Providence win.
