Freshman shooting guard Shamarr Bowden could be out as long as three weeks with a separated left shoulder suffered during Saturday's Green-White scrimmage game, team officials confirmed.
Bowden, who was named to the Atlantic 10 Conference preseason all-rookie team last week, saw his doctor on Sunday. X-rays of the injury showed nothing that required surgery.
Bowden, who missed last season with a knee injury, will likely miss the 49ers' exhibition game with Johnson C. Smith and the home opener with UNC Asheville. He may be ready in time for Charlotte's appearance in the NIT Season Tip-Off Tournament which begins Nov. 16 vs. Elon at Duke.
