SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah could be without two starters when it begins Pac-12 Tournament play Thursday.

Center David Collette must clear the concussion protocol after being hit in the head and leaving the game in the first half of a win over Stanford on Saturday. Collette has averaged 13.7 points and 5.0 rebounds — making him second on the team in both categories.

Coach Larry Krystkowiak hasn't made a decision on the availability of freshman Devon Daniels, who was suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team nearly two weeks ago. Daniels had started 26 of 27 games and averaged 10.4 points per game. His 74 assists rank No. 2 on the team.

The Utes are the No. 4 seed in the tournament and play the winner of the game between No. 5 California and No. 12 Oregon State.
