GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 8 Florida will be without two key backups at Tennessee on Tuesday night.
But coach Billy Donovan says guard Michael Frazier II (concussion) and forward Will Yeguete (knee) could be back for Saturday's game against Alabama.
Frazier sustained a concussion Saturday against Arkansas when he went head-first into Scottie Wilbekin's knee while chasing a loose ball. Yeguete had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Feb. 8 to remove loose bodies.
Their absences will leave the Gators short-handed against the Volunteers. Florida, which needs one win to clinch a first-round bye in the Southeastern Conference tournament, has lost six of its last seven games at Tennessee.
The good news, Donovan says, is both players will return soon.
Frazier averages 6.4 points a game; Yeguete averages 6.0 points and 6.3 rebounds.
