Siva, Knowles out for Stetson game

New, 10 comments

Guards Preston Knowles and Peyton Siva will both miss Wednesday night's game against Stetson and are questionable for Saturday night's tilt with Charlotte, Rick Pitino said Tuesday afternoon.

Knowles re-aggrevated a thumb injury and sat out most of the second half of U of L's 76-71 loss to UNLV on Saturday. Siva sprained his wrist when he tried to block a shot in the same game, and Pitino says his injury is more severe that Knowles'.

With Knowles out, Reggie Delk will re-join the starting lineup tomorrow night, joining Edgar Sosa, Jerry Smith, Samardo Samuels and Rakeem Buckles, who notched a double-double against the Runnin' Rebels and will start over sophomore Jared Swopshire.

With Siva and Knowles sidelined, Pitino said that Smith will serve as the backup point guard and that freshman Mike Marra will see an increase in playing time.
