OU suffers setback

Oakland suffered an unfortunate setback this week in practice when senior forward Derick Nelson broke his foot. Oakland coach Greg Kampe said it was broken bone in the fourth metatarsal and the early prognosis is he will be out 4-8 weeks, but he will know more when Nelson has a bone scan on Monday.
The loss is a serious blow to the Golden Grizzlies, who are one of the preseason favorites in the Summit League and open the season with nine straight road games. Nelson was the team’s leading scorer (17.3 per game) and rebounder (7.4 per game) last season, and was a preseason first-team Summit League selection.
It is also the second straight season Oakland has suffered a serious injury at the start of the season. Last season guard Erik Kangas, who was a preseason first-team Summit League selection last season, broke his collarbone 11 minutes into Oakland’s first game.
Oakland opens the season Saturday night at Cleveland State.
