SAN DIEGO (AP) Half of San Diego State's touted freshman class is expected to be sitting on the bench when the basketball season opens Nov. 14.
Zylan Cheatham, a 6-foot-7 forward, might not be ready to play until around Jan. 1 after having surgery on a broken foot, coach Steve Fisher said Tuesday.
The Aztecs are being cautious with Malik Pope, a 6-8 forward. He broke a leg during his junior season in high school and reinjured it a year ago. He hasn't played since.
