Akil Mitchell's time at the LeBron James Skills Academy was cut short thanks to a broken bone in his right hand that will sideline the UVa senior forward 4-6 weeks.

Mitchell had just returned from the Nike Big Man Camp and was participating in James' camp when he suffered the injury.

With the injury, Virginia's top two scorers from last season are now on the shelf.

Senior guard Joe Harris fractured his foot late last month.
