Fantasy AnalysisKennedy is currently working to raise his grades by the start of the season but is in serious danger of missing the beginning of the 2014-15 campaign. In his potential absence, Cannen Cunningham and Ben Moore would likely see more time on the court.
Fantasy AnalysisSmotrycz suffered the injury while participating in practice. He started 28 games last season, so the Terrapins will need some one to step up at the power forward position until he is ready to return.
Fantasy AnalysisDoyle, a one-time Kansas recruit, led the Ramblers in scoring as a freshman last year with 14.9 points. He added 4.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists to be one of the best returning players in the Missouri Valley. Loyola will rely on newcomers such as Marlon Jones and Montel James to pick up the slack.

Fantasy AnalysisHead coach Billy Donovan indicated the suspension was for a violation of team rules, but nothing beyond that. Walker is no stranger to suspensions, after missing the fall's semester of games last year due to academic ineligibility.

Fantasy AnalysisBullock missed the entire 2013-14 season due to a suspension stemming from "not upholding his responsibility as a student-athlete."

Fantasy AnalysisJones averaged 14.0 points and 7.7 rebounds in 2012-13 with SMU. He will have to sit out four games in 2015-16 because he took part in closed scrimmages while with the Mustangs. Jones could lead the Aggies in scoring.

In 2012-13. he averaged 13.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists while shooting 40.8 percent from the field. The 6-4 Johnson will be an immediate contributor for the Tigers and will push for a starting spot.
