No. 10 Florida will be without leading scorer Casey Prather at Arkansas on Saturday.

Coach Billy Donovan says the senior forward has a bone bruise on his right knee. Prather had some swelling in his knee after Wednesday night's win against South Carolina, and team doctors initially thought he might have torn cartilage. But tests Thursday revealed no structural damage.

Prather is averaging 17 points a game this season and leads the Southeastern Conference in shooting at 62.4 percent.

Point guard Scottie Wilbekin, who left Wednesday's game with a sprained right ankle, is questionable to play against the Razorbacks. Wilbekin sat out practice Thursday and Friday, but should play. Donovan says he's unlikely to start, though.

Center Patric Young also missed practice Thursday with sore knees.
