Will Yeguete injury: Florida big man out 4 to 6 weeks

Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports

Florida's Will Yeguete will miss about a month after having arthroscopic knee surgery. Will he be back in time for the Big Dance?

Florida Gators junior forward Will Yeguete will miss four to six weeks of action after undergoing surgery on his right knee, according to head basketball coach Billy Donovan (via CBS Sports' Matt Norlander).

Yeguete likely won't be back before the end of the regular season after having what Donovan described as "bone chips" removed. His status for the SEC and NCAA tournaments is obviously still up in the air.

The 6'7, 240-pound native of France missed the Gators' final nine games last season after suffering a broken foot. Prior to the injury, he averaged more than four points and six rebounds in 21.9 minutes per game.

Yeguete has played the same amount of minutes this season, but has improved his scoring output to 6.0 points per game while rebounding at an identical rate for the No. 2 Gators (18-3, 8-1 SEC).
