Penn State’s Josh Reaves expected to miss 3 games due to injury

Josh Reaves is out with a left lower-leg injury, the Penn State men’s basketball team announced in a press release Tuesday night.

The guard is “expected to miss the Nittany Lions’ opening three games,” according to the release.

Penn State opens the season at home against Albany at 7 p.m. Friday. The Nittany Lions then play Duquesne at 6 p.m. Sunday and Grand Canyon at 7 p.m. Tuesday before taking on No. 1 Duke on Nov. 19.

Reaves went 7 for 9 from the field and finished with 15 points in 21 minutes in the team’s exhibition game against Lock Haven last Friday.

He averaged 6.4 points and started 20 games last season.
