GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Billy Donovan is cautiously optimistic about his team's health.
Forward Will Yeguete and guard Michael Frazier II were cleared to practice and play Thursday, giving Donovan a full complement of players heading into Saturday's game against Alabama.
It's the first time in three weeks the eighth-ranked Gators (22-5, 12-3 Southeastern Conference) have been fully healthy.
Yeguete, a 6-foot-7 junior averaging 6.0 points and 6.3 rebounds, missed the last six games following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Frazier, a 6-foot-4 freshman averaging 6.4 points, sat out Tuesday night's loss at Tennessee with a concussion.
Without them, the Gators pretty much went with a six-man rotation in a loss at Tennessee on Tuesday night, when they seemed to wear down in the second half.
