Roosevelt Jones questionable vs. Villanova

BY foxsports • January 9, 2016

Butler is set to host Villanova in a marquee Big East game on Sunday night.

However, the Bulldogs may be without their key piece on the perimeter. The team announced on Saturday morning that senior forward Roosevelt Jones is questionable against Villanova due to a sprained left wrist he injured in practice on Thursday.

That is the same wrist that forced him to miss the entire 2013-14 season.

Jones is averaging 14.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game for the Bulldogs.

If Jones were to miss Sunday's game, his absence would also be felt on the defensive end, as the Bulldogs would face on the nation's most dynamic perimeters without their top stopper.

The Bulldogs and Wildcats are scheduled to tip at 7:30 p.m. EST on FS1.
