De’Aaron Fox may not play in Gainesville after all.
According to SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker, Fox has not practiced all week, and his chances of playing tonight are “slim.”
The good news is Fox at least traveled with the team and is present at the arena...

UK has been calling Fox a game-time decision all week and continue to as of Saturday afternoon. It looks like the team will at least test him in pregame warmups, but if he’s not been practicing, it may be best to play it safe and keep him out.
If Fox doesn’t play tonight, it’s hard to see the Cats beating the Gators, at least based on how both teams have played recently.
