Vols' Maymon likely out at least through November

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee forward Jeronne Maymon will probably miss at least the rest of Tennessee's November games as he continues to recover from arthroscopic knee surgery.

Maymon had a setback in his recovery that prevented him from playing Friday in the Vols' season-opening 76-67 victory over Kennesaw State. Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said Monday he didn't expect the 6-foot-7 senior to return in November, though he offered no further timetable.

Tennessee faces UNC Asheville on Thursday in its first of 3 games at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. After returning from Puerto Rico, the Vols host Oakland on Nov. 26 and play at Georgetown on Nov. 30.

Maymon averaged 12.7 points and a team-high 8.1 rebounds last season to earn second-team all-Southeastern Conference honors.
