Florida's Mike Frazier out indefinitely with mononucleosis
Michael Frazier could miss Florida's opener, after the school announced Wednesday that he has mononucleosis.
The uncertainty surrounding Florida’s roster continues to grow.
On Wednesday, the Gators announced that sophomore Michael Frazier has mononucleosis and is out indefinitely. He will miss at least Friday’s exhibition against Florida Southern.
“Maybe more than that,” Florida trainer David Werner told Chris Harry of the school’s official site. “We’ll have to wait and see.
“He just needs to rest right now.”
Frazier tested for mono two weeks ago, but tests came back negative, according to the school. He was tested against on Sunday, and this one came back positive.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard shot nearly 47 percent from 3-point range last season, and also made the USA U-19 World Championships team in the summer. He averaged 5.6 points and 3.1 rebounds in 18.0 minutes.
Florida’s backcourt situation for the opener could be interesting. Scottie Wilbekin is expected to be suspended for a few games at the start of the season and Rutgers transfer Eli Carter is still recovering from the broken leg he suffered toward the end of last season. Freshman point guard Kasey Hill and sophomore DeVon Walker could be the starting backcourt when the Gators face North Florida on Nov. 8.
