Injuries were one of the main themes of the Florida Gators' football season.  Now injuries are starting to mount for the Gator men's basketball team.

Leading scorer Casey Prather will be held out of the Gators' next game this weekend against Arkansas.  Prather has a bone bruise on his knee that caused swelling earlier this week.  Tests show no structural damage.

Prather has been averaging over 17 points per game and leads the Southeastern Conference in shooting percentage.
