With college basketball season set to begin Friday, the last thing Missouri needed was to deal with another loss. So far, the Tigers have two losses already and the opening tip has not been tossed yet.
Freshman guard Keon Lawrence joined swingman Glen Dandridge on the injured list. Dandridge broke his foot earlier in the month. Lawrence recently suffered a stress fracture in his left foot that will sideline him for six-to-eight weeks.
Lawrence was expected to log major minutes in his college debut season. He will not need to undergo surgery but will be placed in an orthopedic boot.
Mizzou opens the season Friday with an exhibition game against Missouri-Rolla.
