Tough news for the UH basketball team today, with senior forward Bill Amis set to miss about five weeks with a stress fracture in his right foot, the same foot that caused him to miss all of last season.
Expect the other Rainbows bigs, Vander Joaquim, Douglas Kurtz and Joston Thomas, to see a greater workload while Amis recovers.
Per our Jason Kaneshiro, who was at practice today, Amis will try for a return for the Western Athletic Conference opener on Dec. 29. That means he'll miss eight games through the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic.
Tough news; Amis was the team's leading scorer (15.8), rebounder (6.8) and shot blocker (seven blocks in four games).
