No Joe could mean something … or it may mean absolutely nothing

The only thing we know for certain about Isaiah Joe’s absence from Arkansas’ first basketball practice is that he wasn’t there, according to a report by Bob Holt at on Tuesday.

Mike Cawood from the sports communications office told Holt that Joe was “still exploring his NBA dream,” which wasn’t particularly surprising.

Naturally, speculation will run rampant now as we basically have little else to guess about for the next couple of weeks.

Joe, a 6-5 shooter from Fort Smith Northside, has until Aug. 3 to make a decision about whether to come back for another year with the Hogs or declare himself available for the NBA Draft.

It’s easy to guess his absence from the first practice is a guess that he’s gone.

The flip side to that is, well, Joe has shown over the last couple of years missing the first day of practice probably isn’t going to affect him a whole lot.
