Josiah-Jordan James (knee pain) still in everyday life

Josiah Jordan Jamesthe senior wing, which leads Tennessee (5-1) in scoring (13.7 points per game) and rebounds (6.0), has missed four straight games due to knee pain

His status is day by day according to the head coach Rick Barneswho said Tuesday before practice that James will return to the ground when he feels ready.

“It’s really up to him,” Barnes said. “We want him to be 100 per cent healthy when he’s ready to play. He did a little yesterday, but only he knows where he really is. Mentally I think he has to feel good about it when he’s ready to go.”

The Vols won three games in three days in the Bahamas without James, beating Butler, USC and Kansas. James didn’t get dressed for the butler game. He warmed up for both the USC and Kansas games before they were held.

He warmed up with his teammates before the McNeese State game Wednesday, but didn’t get dressed for the game.

“We’ll leave it to him,” Barnes said of James. “Once again he was made to understand that we want him to be comfortable. Certainly we won’t ask anyone to play if they don’t feel (well).

“We just want him to feel good. As much as he’s put into the program, he’ll know when he’s ready.”
