Former Greeneview High School standout Evan Bradds’ pre-draft tryout Wednesday with the Indiana Pacers was cut short by a pair of injuries, according to a report in The Tennessean.

Bradds, a 6-foot-7 forward who just completed his college career at Belmont University, suffered a broken nose after taking an elbow to the faced. He continued to play in the tryout with other college prospects when he suffered a torn ACL. He likely will need surgery and will be sidelined for 6 to 8 months, the report said.
