Garcia was hurt in a non-contact drill, The Commercial Appeal reported. Memphis signee Martin Ngaloro also tore an ACL recently and will remain in France this season.

Tigers coach Josh Pastner was counting on Garcia, a 6-foot-11 forward from Puerto Rico, to bolster a team with just nine scholarship players. He did not play last season due to academics reasons.
