James has shoulder tear

Duquesne University forward/center Shawn James has been diagnosed with a small tear in the labrum of his right shoulder and is doubtful for Wednesday night's game at Temple. He is scheduled to see a shoulder specialist tomorrow morning. "Shawn had an MRI done this morning that showed a small tear," said Duquesne head coach Ron Everhart. "Our team physician felt it best that he see a specialist before beginning any kind of rehab and he'll do that tomorrow. "He will not be traveling with the team. If it is determined that he can play, there is a possibility we could fly him to Philadelphia tomorrow and have him for limited duty. If not, he'll stay back and begin rehab."

The Dukes have lost 4 games in a row with Shawn James in the lineup, maybe James' injury will force some of his teammates to step up and help get the Dukes get out of the funk they are in.

Don't forget that the Temple game will be on Fox Sports Pittsburgh at 7pm.
