PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh junior forward Durand Johnson has been suspended for the entire 2014-15 season, with no reason given.

The Panthers made the announcement on Friday before the season opener against Niagara. Johnson averaged 13.0 points in two exhibitions this season after recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee in January.

Johnson will remain with the program and can practice with the team.

Pitt coach Jamie Dixon gave no explanation for the suspension, but said in a statement he’s encouraging Johnson to “make the most of this year personally, academically and athletically.”
