OPRF boys basketball starting guard Ka’Darryl Bell will not be suiting up tonight against York, according to head coach Matt Maloney.

Bell, who injured his wrist in the first quarter of Saturday night’s West Suburban Conference cross-over loss to Downers Grove South and did not play the rest of the game, is in the process of getting a second opinion from a doctor on the injury.

“Right now, we are unsure of the extent of the injury and the amount of time he will be out,” said Maloney on Tuesday morning.

Bell, who is headed to Bradley University in the fall, scored 12 points in OPRF’s 54-34 victory over Downers Grove North on Friday night. His absence, especially on offense, could be problematic against York, a team that boasts 6-2 sharp-shooting junior David Cohn.  

York knocked the Huskies out of the playoffs last season, capping OPRF’s losing streak at six games. The Dukes accounted for two of those six losses at the end of last season, but have since graduated several players from that squad.

Expect speedy guard Jakari Cammon and big men Gabe Levin (6-foot-7), Thomas Ross (6-8) and TK Mattox (6-7) to play major roles for the Huskies (4-1, 1-0) tonight.

Tip-off is 7 p.m. at the field house in Oak Park.
