Myles Hamilton's debut at Cleveland State will be delayed.
The team announced on Wednesday that Hamilton has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.
"[There's] a great possibility you won't see him all of November," Vikings head coach Gary Waters said at his media gathering on Wednesday.
Hamilton, a redshirt junior from Cleveland who starred at St. Edward High School, was expected to compete for the starting point guard position.
A former walk-on, Hamilton transferred from Kennessaw State last year and sat out the 2014-15 season. He started 39 of 54 games with the Owls, averaging 6.0 points, 2.4 assists in 21.9 minutes in his two-year career at KSU.
Sophomore Kenny Carpenter and freshmen Rob Edwards will handle the point guard duties when the Vikings open the season on Saturday night against Akron in the Northeast Ohio Coaches vs. Cancer Doubleheader at Kent State.
"The biggest work in progress is at the point," Waters said. "That is probably going to take the whole year [to figure it out]. [Andre] Yates might have to see some time there."
Yates, CSU's top returning scorer from last season at 6.1 points per game, is expected to open the season as the starter at shooting guard.
