COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri point guard Phil Pressey will be sidelined at least two weeks after breaking his right ring finger in practice.
Pressey, a freshman, started the last two games for the ninth-ranked Tigers after sophomore Michael Dixon was suspended for violating team rules. Dixon is practicing with the team but his status was unclear for Wednesday's game against No. 21 Illinois in St. Louis.
Pressey had a career-high 15 points and had 11 assists to tie the school freshman record on Saturday in a 116-63 victory over Central Arkansas. He's averaging 5.2 points and 4.1 assists, averaging 20.5 minutes per game.
