SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's Misha Radojevic will miss the basketball season because of a knee injury that happened during preseason workouts.

Radojevic, a 6-foot-10, 250-pound forward/center from Serbia, tore his right anterior cruciate ligament on Wednesday. Utah announced Friday that Radojevic won't be able to play in 2005-06, which would have been his first season with the Utes.

Radojevic transferred to Utah after attending Belgrade Polytechnic Academy. He had two years of eligibility remaining, and Utah will appeal for a medical hardship for this season.
