(UTSports.com) -- Tennessee basketball trainer Chad Newman announced that sophomore guard J.P. Prince underwent an arthroscopic procedure to his left shoulder this morning. The outpatient procedure was performed at UT Medical Center in Knoxville. A transfer from Arizona who will not be eligible under NCAA transfer requirements until mid-December, Prince is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks.
