KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee guard and leading scorer Chris Lofton has a minor leg injury but is expected to play Thursday against Louisville.
Team spokesman Craig Pinkerton says Lofton wore a walking boot on his foot as a precaution while the Vols rested on Monday and was expected to practice on Tuesday.
Coach Bruce Pearl told The Knoxville News Sentinel that Lofton ``tweaked'' his ankle in the first half of Tennessee's 76-71 overtime win against Butler in the NCAA tournament.
Lofton leads Tennessee with 15.5 points per game.
