The 2015-16 college basketball season is right around the corner and the Memphis Tigers are hoping to have a competitive program this year. Unfortunately, news broke that they could be without one of their guards for the entire season.
According to a report from College Football Talk, Kedren Johnson could miss the entire season due to a shoulder injury.
Last season with Memphis, Johnson averaged 6.7 points, 2.7 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game. He shot 40.3 percent from the field overall and knocked down 35.3 percent from behind the three-point arc.
At 6-foot-4 and 218 pounds, Johnson is a very big guard that could be a huge mismatch maker for the Tigers.
Memphis also lost Jaylen Fisher to UNLV this offseason which has left the Tigers extremely thin at the guard position. Head coach Josh Pastner has lost a lot of the depth that would have made his team fairly comfortable this season and there is reason for concern.
Hopefully Johnson will be able to play this season and give them as much as he can through the injury.
