Villanova freshman guard James Bell has stress fractures in the tibia of both legs and will be sidelined from basketball activities for an undetermined period of time, the school announced.

Bell will be re-evaluated in October.

"We're disappointed for James," coach Jay Wright said in a statement. "He has acclimated himself very well academically and socially at Villanova in his short time with us. I am sure he will take that same kind of mature approach with his rehab. We don't know how long he will be out, but we will monitor his rehab closely."

Bell. 6-5, was a third team All-American choice of USA Today and a fourth team selection by Parade Magazine. He averaged 18.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.3 steals per game during his senior season at Montverde Academy in Orlando, Fla.
