Florida received some good news about the status of point guard Kasey Hill on Tuesday.

X-rays on Hill’s sprained left ankle came back negative, showing no broken bones or ligament damage. The McDonald’s All-American, 6-foot-1 guard from Umatilla will likely miss a month with a high ankle sprain after rolling his ankle during the second half of UF’s game Monday night against Southern.

Hill attended UF’s practice Tuesday on crutches. With Hill out, Florida sophomore Michael Frazier II will likely start at point guard Thursday night when the Gators (3-1) face Middle Tennessee State at the O’Connell Center. Returning starting point guard Scottie Wilbekin remains suspended for disciplinary reasons.
