Florida Gators' Kasey Hill to miss 1-2 months with ankle injury



The Florida Gators avoided a major loss this week, and it wasn’t a loss on the court, but instead, they faced the potential reality of having to go the rest of the season without their star point guard. Highly touted freshman point guard Kasey Hill, who was averaging 10 points a game, suffered a high-ankle sprain early in the second half against Southern on Monday night.

Thankfully for he and the Gators, tests showed no further damage to Hill’s badly sprained left ankle:


X-rays taken Tuesday determined no broken bones, and coach Billy Donovan believes Hill will be sidelined at least a month. Hill is now hindered by one of the tougher injuries for athletes to deal with, especially for a basketball player reliant on being able to cut quickly with his feet.

The injury could be problematic for the Gators which already is without point guard Scottie Wilbekin. The senior is suspended indefinitely but could return as early as next week.
