Vols' Maymon likely to miss start of season

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee forward Jeronne Maymon likely will miss the start of the season after having a setback in his recovery from off season knee surgery.
Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin announced Maymon's "minor setback" before the Volunteers' Wednesday afternoon practice. Martin didn't rule Maymon out for the Vols' Nov. 9 opener with Kennesaw State, but he indicated the 6-foot-7 senior probably wouldn't be ready for the start of the season. Martin wouldn't speculate on exactly when Maymon might be ready to return.
Maymon underwent arthroscopic surgery on each of his knees during the off season in two separate procedures. Maymon averaged 12.7 points and ranked fifth in the Southeastern Conference with 8.1 rebounds per game last season to earn second-team all-SEC honors.
