"Preston, as well as Peyton, probably will be out for this game," Pitino said. "I'm hoping that Preston will be back by Thursday or Friday. Peyton sprained his wrist very bad when he blocked that shot, hasn't practiced and he's wearing a soft cast. I would say Preston will be back before Peyton. I think they'll both miss this game and I think they're questionable for Saturday's game [against Charlotte]. But I think Preston could play for Saturday's game."
Knowles and Siva were both injured during Louisville's 76-71 loss at UNLV Saturday. With those two out, Pitino will be forced to shuffle his lineup against Stetson.
"Rock's also going to start and he showed great competitive fire in that game," said Pitino. "We're not getting a whole lot of rebounding from certain people and the one thing he did when the ball was on the glass was go and get it. Rock was very intense and did a lot of things I liked in that game [against UNLV]."
