GAINESVILLE, Florida — Florida point guard Scottie Wilbekin could miss next week's game against No. 6 Kansas because of a high-ankle sprain.
Team officials said Tuesday that X-rays on Wilbekin's right ankle were negative, but added that there is no timetable for his return.

Wilbekin rolled his ankle late in Monday night's 65-64 loss at No. 12 Connecticut.
The senior's injury is the latest for No. 15 Florida (6-2).
Point guard Kasey Hill has missed the last four games with a high-ankle sprain. Guard DeVon Walker has been slowed by a sprained foot. Guard Eli Carter, who transferred from Rutgers, has decided to take a medical redshirt while recovering from a broken leg. And guard Dillon Graham also is done for the season with a hip injury.
