Syracuse big man Dajuan Coleman won’t play at all this season after undergoing knee surgery a year ago and will redshirt this season.
“He’s had some soreness and stiffness the last couple practices,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said, according to Syracuse.com. “He’s not going to play this year.”
The 6-foot-10 sophomore will redshirt this season.
“It’s official as far as I’m concerned, unless something radical happens, except I don’t think it will,” Boeheim said.
