No. 10 Florida has suffered through quite a few injuries and suspensions this season, and the hits just keep on coming. When the Gators take on Arkansas on Saturday, they will be missing their leading scorer for the season. Casey Prather has a bone bruise in his right knee and is unable to play, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press.
The senior forward experienced some swelling after the team's victory Wednesday over South Carolina, but further tests revealed no structural damage.
Billy Donovan could miss his senior forward, considering Arkansas has won its last 23 home games. Something has got to give Saturday, with Florida emerging as the victors in six straight.
Senior guard Scottie Wilbekin missed practice Thursday and Friday with a high ankle sprain and is unlikely to start, though he will play.
Tennessee's Hubbs III to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery
Hubbs' shoulder has bothered him since he was at Dyer County High School in Newberg, Tenn. He has missed each of the team's past two games -- both victories -- due to the shoulder.
Hubbs had played in all 12 of the Vols' games before missing two, averaging 5.0 points in 18.3 minutes.
Temple guard Cummings questionable due to concussion
Temple will be very short-handed when they take on No. 24 Memphis Saturday. After hitting the floor hard in Wednesday's loss the South Florida, it is uncertain if junior Will Cummings will play with concussion-like symptoms.
Due to previous injuries, Temple was down to just seven available players against USF. Forwards Daniel Dingle and Mark Williams are out with a torn meniscus and a sprained ankle, respectively.
Being without Cummings would be a big loss for the Owls. He is .2 behind Dalton Pepper for the team lead in scoring average, and also leads the team in assists per game with 4.0.
