Will Florida have two key players back for Arkansas?

No. 14 Florida would feel a lot better about playing at Arkansas today if Will Yeguete and Mike Rosario are available.

Good thing the game’s not until 6 p.m. ET.

Yeguete missed the last two games because of a concussion, but was cleared to practice Friday. Coach Billy Donovan says the forward’s response to Friday’s practice and travel to Fayetteville will still determine if he can play, though.

As for Rosario, he’s good to go after missing the last two games because of a hip pointer, but Donovan says rust may be a factor. Guards Scottie Wilbekin and Casey Prather will likely get his playing time.

“I think that’d probably be wishful thinking on my part to think that going in here this guy’s going to play a major role in the game,” Donovan said. “But he would be available to play if he can continue to get through the practice without any pain.”

The Gators (20-6, 8-3 in SEC) won at Alabama on Tuesday, but Arkansas is underrated as a tough SEC out this season. Having Rosario’s offensive skill and Yeguete’s size (6-7) inside would be bonuses.
