Kaminski suspended against GVSU

Redshirt freshman forward might miss "two or three" games, Izzo says

Michigan State played every member of its roster Tuesday in its 101-52 win against Grand Valley State except for one.

Redshirt freshman Kenny Kaminski did not play for the Spartans and coach Tom Izzo said it was because of not meeting offseason requirements.

"Kaminski didn't play for a couple of reasons," Izzo said. "Mostly not meeting the expectations I needed him to this summer. …

"We had meetings about what he had to take care of and he just didn't get them all done. It's a little warning. He will miss the first two or three games. He will be and he'll be back on track and he's actually doing very well, so hopefully that'll be an end to that."

The 6-foot-8 forward, who Izzo described as possibly the best pure shooter on the team, redshirted last season while recovering from shoulder surgery.

Izzo said the issues are academic-related, but are not affective eligibility.
