Hardaway said the most he can hope for is a swift resolution.

“(Best-case scenario would be) that the reinstatement happens quickly and he doesn’t have to miss any games,” he said. “That would be ideal.”

Hardaway said Wiseman has handled the situation as well as can be expected. 

"He's just really confused," Hardaway said. "Like, really confused. Like I said, he's an 18-year-old kid. He's really, like, hurt that they're trying to take games away from him. All he wants to do is play basketball. He tells the players and has told me plenty of times through this entire process that he's happy for his brothers and his family, and 'We'll get past this.' James is a very brilliant kid. He understands what's going on, but it still hurts."

The Tigers will host Alcorn State at 1 p.m. Saturday. If Memphis has to take the floor without its preseason All-American, Hardaway is confident his team is well suited to take care of business.

“We’ve been here, in the two exhibition games. We went to the Bahamas (and Wiseman didn’t play),” he said. “Obviously, the rest of the crew is well prepared to go out and play. We’d love to have him. But until we find out, the other guys are more than ready to go.”

The last time the Tigers played without Wiseman, the team’s other five-star big man, Precious Achiuwa, took on the majority of responsibility at the center spot. Hardaway said that’s not the plan this time around.

“We really don’t want to do that that much,” he said. “We’re going to have to ask Lance Thomas and Isaiah Maurice to really step it up at the five spot. Because we kind of want to keep Precious at his regular position. If we have to (have him) go to the five, that just means we’re desperate to do that.”
