UNLV's Dejean-Jones has strained hamstring, questionable for opener
Word is back regarding Bryce Dejean-Jones' injury: it's a strained hamstring, but the timeline is undetermined.
Friday was not a good night for UNLV. The Runnin’ Rebels lost to Dixie State in an exhibition game – but more importantly, leading returning scorer Bryce Dejean-Jones left the game after suffering a hamstring injury.
After the game, head coach Dave Rice didn’t seem optimistic about Dejean-Jones’ status, calling the injury “significant” and even mentioning Dejean-Jones hearing a “pop.”
On Monday, the news was much more positive. Rice told ESPN.com that Dejean-Jones has a strained hamstring – and while he will miss Tuesday’s exhibition game, the injury doesn’t seem long-term.
Sources indicated to CBSSports.com that the Rebels are hopeful Dejean-Jones will be available for Friday’s season opener against Portland State.
Dejean-Jones, a 6-foot-5 swingman from Los Angeles, averaged 10.3 points last season, his first since transferring from USC. With three other double-figure scorers gone from a year ago, Dejean-Jones is expected to take on a much bigger role offensively. If Dejean-Jones does miss time, junior college transfer Jelan Kendrick would have to be the primary wing scorer for the Rebels.
