Cooley Says He’ll Miss Remainder Of Preseason

Cooley says that he had his knee scoped back in January and was working out recently when the knee ended up more swollen.  He and team ended up getting a second opinion.  Sitting out the remainder of the preseason will give him the adequate rest for the swelling to go down.
