GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 2 Florida will be without forward Will Yeguete for at least the rest of the regular season following knee surgery.
Yeguete will have arthroscopic surgery Friday to remove loose bodies. Yeguete has dealt with tendinitis all season, but coach Billy Donovan says his knee had ``significant swelling'' in recent weeks.
Yeguete, usually the first player off the bench, is averaging 6.0 points and 6.3 rebounds this season. The Frenchman also is the team's best frontcourt defender.
He played a minute in Tuesday's loss at Arkansas before leaving with knee pain. Tests revealed the extent of the injury.
It's the latest blow for a team that has dealt with injuries to Casey Prather (concussion, high-ankle sprain), Scottie Wilbekin (broken finger), Mike Rosario (ankle) and Erik Murphy (broken rib).
