Mississippi's DeAndre Burnett escapes serious injury
Mississippi Rebels senior guard DeAndre Burnett does not have any ligament damage after rolling his ankle on Wednesday and will be considered day-to-day with a high ankle sprain, according to Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports.
Burnett was forced from Wednesday's game against the Georgia Bulldogs with the sprain after playing only 13 minutes. While it is a positive the injury does not appear to be serious, his availability for Saturday's game versus the South Carolina Gamecocks is in doubt. Ole Miss sits at 10-6 but is 1-3 in SEC play and is a long shot make the NCAA Tournament. Our models currently give them a 7.1 percent probability.
Replacing Burnett will be difficult as he is the team's leading scorer with 18.0 points per game and accounts for nearly 30 percent -- 12.5 attempts per game -- of the shots taken by the team.
