GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 8 Florida will have its full roster available Saturday against Alabama.

Coach Billy Donovan says forward Will Yeguete and guard Michael Frazier II have been cleared to practice and play.

Yeguete, a 6-foot-7 junior averaging 6.0 points and 6.3 rebounds, missed the last six games following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Frazier, a 6-foot-4 freshman averaging 6.4 points, sat out Tuesday night's loss at Tennessee with a concussion.

Without them, the Gators pretty much went with a six-man rotation against the Volunteers.

Donovan, though, is cautioning his team about putting too much stock in their return. Donovan says his guys need "to step up and they've got to play and they cannot take the approach of, `Well, we're a little bit deeper. We have more guys available."'
