Wagner In Hospital With Bladder Infection

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers rookie Dajuan Wagner is expected to be hospitalized until next week with a bladder infection.

It's not known whether the 19-year-old Wagner will be available for the season opener Oct. 29 at Sacramento, the team said Wednesday.

The sixth overall pick in June's draft missed the team's first three preseason games because of abdominal pain. He returned to practice Monday, then went to the hospital Tuesday after experiencing more pain.

Wagner played one year of college basketball, averaging 21.2 points at Memphis. He scored 100 points in a game as a high school senior in Camden, N.J.
