Coach Penny Hardaway says Memphis' best hope is that freshman James Wiseman is reinstated and doesn't have to miss any games.
"That would be ideal," Hardaway said Friday.
That seems unlikely with 13th-ranked Memphis playing its next game Saturday, hosting Alcorn State just over 48 hours after Wiseman told his attorneys to withdraw his lawsuit against the NCAA and Memphis. The university ruled the 7-foot-1 center ineligible and is working with the NCAA to resolve his eligibility.
"When you find out, you let me know," Hardaway said when asked about a possible resolution. "We are still waiting on Isaiah Stokes' [transfer waiver from Florida]. So we're just in limbo right now."
Hardaway said Memphis hasn't heard anything about when this situation could be resolved to get Wiseman back on the court. But the coach also made clear Memphis supports Wiseman.
