Alabama suspends Mitchell for rest of season

By Jeff Goodman

Alabama has suspended forward Tony Mitchell for rest of the season, sources told CBSSports.com, while senior big man JaMychal Green has been reinstated to practice.

Crimson Tide coach Anthony Grant suspended Mitchell a couple weeks ago for conduct detrimental to the team. 

Grant then suspended Green, along with starting point guard Trevor Releford and Andrew Steele, just prior to the loss against LSU on Feb. 11. 

Releford and Steele were reinstated and played in the last two games - a loss at home against Florida and a victory in Tuscaloosa over Tennessee. 

Green, Mitchell and Releford are the top three scorers on the team. Mitchell was averaging 13.1 points and seven rebounds. 

The Crimson Tide are 17-9 overall and 6-6 in SEC play heading into Thursday's game against Arkansas.
