Gators' guard Michael Frazier diagnosed with mononucleosis



Less than one week after Gators guard Michael Frazier thought he had dodge mononucleosis, it turns out he does in fact have the viral illness.

Florida announced today that Frazier, a sophomore from Tampa, will miss at least Friday night's exhibition game against Florida Southern after being diagnosed with mono.

Team trainer Duke Werner said it's possible Frazier could miss more games.

Florida coach Billy Donovan said two weeks ago that Frazier was exhibiting mono-like symptoms and had missed practice time, but the orignial tests came back negative.

Last week, Frazier described what he'd been going through lately, saying: "They said I had a virus. I had body aches, bad headaches, sore throat, everything.”

Last season Frazier averaged 5.6 points per game and hit 44.6 percent from the 3-point line. He was expected to be a part of the Gators' starting backcourt beginning Friday night.
