Arizona Wildcats freshman Zeke Nnaji will miss Friday’s exhibition against Chico State due to an ankle injury, according to the team’s official Twitter account.

It is unclear how severe the injury is or how long Nnaji will be sidelined. Head coach Sean Miller will address the media after the game.

The 6-foot-11 Nnaji recently won the gold jersey in practice and was a candidate to start at the 4. Senior Stone Gettings or junior Ira Lee will likely get the nod instead.

Nnaji was a consensus top-40 recruit coming out of Hopkins High School in Hopkins, Minnesota.

The Wildcats are also without sophomore guard Devonaire Doutrive, who has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.
