Freshman forward Justin Gray played only six minutes Monday night against West Virginia.
Coach Smith said his tendinitis, that Gray has in both knees, has flared up bad.
"We're going to have to shut him down," Smith said. "I'm afraid he might do more damage to his knees. It really hurts because he's a 6-foot-6 guy that can play the three and four."
By "shut him down," Gray won't practice this week. Smith said they would see how he is at game time.
