Another hit for Florida: Scottie Wilbekin suffers high-ankle sprain
Florida will be severely shorthanded heading into games against Kansas and Memphis: starting PG Scottie Wilbekin has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain.
Another week, another personnel issue for Florida.
Scottie Wilbekin has been diagnosed with a right high ankle sprain and is out indefinitely, the school said Tuesday afternoon.
He suffered the injury in Monday’s 65-64 loss at Connecticut.
Wilbekin, the team’s starting point guard last season, has only played in three games this season after serving a five-game suspension to start the campaign. His replacement, freshman stud Kasey Hill, has been out since November 18 with a high ankle sprain. He is expected to miss at least a month, meaning Florida could be without a point guard for at least another week.
This is just another on a long list of personnel issues for Florida. Wilbekin and Dorian Finney-Smith both returned from suspension, but Damontre Harris is still not playing. Wilbekin and Hill are both injured, and Rutgers transfer Eli Carter is redshirting to continue recovering from the broken leg he suffered last February. On top of all that, five-star freshman Chris Walker is still not cleared to play due to academics. He could return this month.
Head coach Billy Donovan used just six players for more than six minutes against the Huskies on Monday – and one of them was Wilbekin. In other words, he could be severely shorthanded going into upcoming games against Kansas and Memphis.
