Oregon G Dylan Ennis could miss at least a month
Oregon defeated Northwest Christian, 92-44, on Tuesday night in the first of two exhibition games. It was also the first game in which the Ducks will be playing without starting point guard Dylan Ennis, as head coach Dana Altman told reporters that Ennis is dealing with a foot injury, according to Pete Martini of the Statesman Journal.
"He's going to be out for a while," Altman said. "I'm not sure how long, but we won't see him (in) November, for sure, and maybe not even in December, I'm not sure. The doctors are still deciding exactly what procedure we're going to go through."
Ennis is a graduate transfer, spending the past two seasons at Villanova. During the 2014-15 season, Ennis started all 36 games for the Wildcats, averaging 9.9 points and 3.5 assists per game, while shooting 36 percent from three. He transferred to Oregon for his final season as a way to improve his pro stock as a point guard.
Sophomore guard Casey Benson started in place of Ennis. He averaged 3.5 points in 19.6 minutes per game for the Ducks last season.
Oregon hosts Jackson State on Nov. 13 in the team's season opener.
