MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota freshman Wally Ellenson has a broken left hand and will miss six to eight weeks.

Coach Tubby Smith said after Wednesday’s practice that Ellenson hurt his shooting hand when it caught in a teammate’s jersey during a rebounding drill the day before. Smith said he will consider redshirting Ellenson, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound shooting guard from Rice Lake, Wis., who averaged 20.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game as a senior.

Ellenson was being counted on to back up Joe Coleman and Austin Hollins at the wing spots.

Minnesota opens the season on Nov. 9 at home against American University.
