Florida Gators forward, Will Yeguete, is turning into the Andrew Bynum of college basketball. Yeguete, who has a long history of injuries, just completed surgery for his right knee, again.


The injury prone Yeguete missed the final nine games of his sophomore season at Florida, as he sat out with a broken foot. He then had to sit out for most of February as he had orthopaedic surgery on his right knee in his junior year. The surgery wasn’t unexpected to say the least, but it will keep him out for three to four months. He’ll miss pre-season practice.

Yeguette, who was only able to score five points and five rebounds per game, could be an all around fantastic player he stayed healthy. His numbers don’t justify his capabilities as he is a sold rebounder, defender and contributor.

Hopefully Yeguette will stay healthy and have all these knee issues over with.
