Florida forward Casey Prather to miss Georgetown game with concussion



Florida junior G/F Casey Prather has suffered his second concussion and will not play in Friday night's season opener.

"Unfortunately he had another concussion yesterday,'' Florida coach Billy Donovan said today. "He was totally healed from the first one, so there's no problem as it relates to this necessarily being prolonged, because he did have a concussion before that. He got an elbow on a rebound and went down. He went through practice, and obviously now I think what everybody is doing with concussions, he's got to go through a series of baseline tests and do various things. They don't think this is as bad as it was before, but I would say he probably is not going to play on Friday."

This is Prather's second concussion in the past two weeks. He has had three in his career.

No. 10 Florida will play Georgetown Friday at 9 p.m. in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic, on the USS Bataan at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville.
