Arizona Wildcats freshman guard Elliott Pitts will not play tonight against Cal Poly because of a wrist injury, a team spokesman said, while center Kaleb Tarczewski was kept out of the starting lineup.

Not playing also keeps Pitts eligible for a redshirt year, should he opt for one. Players cannot play in any regular-season games if they want to take a non-medical redshirt year.

Pitts is projected as the 11th player in UA's rotation. UA coach Sean Miller has said Pitts has good long-term potential but needs more strength to compete effectively.

Pitts is listed at 6-foot-5 and 180 pounds. In UA's exhibition win over Augustana on Oct. 28, Pitts had three points on 1-for-4 shooting and five rebounds.

Without Tarczewski, the Wildcats went with a small lineup that featured Brandon Ashley at center, Aaron Gordon at power forward, Nick Johnson at small forward, Gabe York at shooting guard and T.J. McConnell at point guard.
