Florida forward Will Yeguete will undergo surgery Friday to repair bone chips in his knee. He’s expected to miss four to six weeks with coach Bill Donovan hoping he can make it back for the postseason.
“It’s Will’s decision,” Coach Billy Donovan said Thursday. “He wants to do what he can to play this season.
Gators are 18-3 and 8-1 in conference play. Sans Yeguete, they’ll face Mississippi State Saturday and then Kentucky, currently just one game behind Florida, on Tuesday. The 6’7″ Yeguete was the team’s second-leading rebounder.
