GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Casey Prather is the latest Florida player on the mend.

Prather will be out 10 to 14 days, including Thursday's game at Texas A&M, after sustaining a high-ankle sprain in Saturday's win at LSU. Prather, a junior averaging 6.8 points and 3.3 rebounds, was wearing a walking boot on his left foot and using crutches Monday.

The 10th-ranked Gators (12-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) already are dealing with injuries to guard Mike Rosario, guard Scottie Wilbekin, forward Erik Murphy and forward Will Yeguete.

Rosario sat out Saturday's game with a sprained left ankle, but has been cleared to practice and play. Wilbekin (finger) and Murphy (rib) are playing with broken bones, and Yeguete is getting more tests to see if there are more issues than tendinitis in his right knee.
