Ole Miss loses Aaron Jones, Nick Williams to injury indefinitely

USA TODAY Sports

The Rebels will be without their best reserve players during the toughest part of their schedule.

The Ole Miss Rebels had been riding high with what some have considered their best season in decades, but a loss to the Kentucky Wildcats on their own floor not only hurt them in the loss column, as they'll be without their best two bench players for the foreseeable future, according to the Clarion Ledger.

Aaron Jones will be out the rest of the season with a torn ACL he suffered in the second half of the No. 16 Rebels' loss to the Wildcats. Jones was grabbing 4.1 rebounds a game in 16.9 minutes off the bench. The Rebels will also be without Nick Williams, who is dealing with a foot injury. Williams had suffered from plantar fasciitis for a number of weeks in the same foot he injured, but it's unknown whether it's related to his previous injury. Williams is averaging 9.4 points per contest.

The injuries couldn't have come at a worse time for Ole Miss. They head to Gainesville on Saturday to take on the No. 4 Florida Gators before coming back home in a week to play the Mississippi St. Bulldogs. Then it's off to Columbia to play their second ranked opponent in as many weekends, the No. 17 Missouri Tigers.
