Memphis officials are optimistic that freshman star James Wiseman will miss less than the nine games the NCAA's impermissible benefits rules prescribe, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

"The hope is he misses three, maybe six games," a source told Charania.

However, if Wiseman's 2019-20 season isn't saved, he intends to refile his lawsuit against the NCAA and Memphis, sources told Charania.
