Gators could be without Parsons

No. 14 Florida could be without versatile forward Chandler Parsons at LSU on Sunday.

Parsons, who leads the team in assists and rebounds, sustained a deep thigh bruise in Saturday's 61-60 win against Tennessee and has been on crutches since.

Coach Billy Donovan says Parsons is out indefinitely and has some bleeding in his left leg. Donovan believes the earliest Parsons could return to practice would be Thursday. If not, he probably won't play against the Tigers.

Parsons has started every game this season, averaging 10.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists. He was clearly hobbld against the Volunteers, finishing with three points and three assists.


The Gators (20-5) have won 12 of their last 14 games while moving atop the Southeastern Conference.
