Florida's Egbunu out for the season with torn ACL

  Florida center John Egbunu (15) anchored the Gators' defense when healthy this season.

Florida center John Egbunu will miss the remainder of the 2016-17 season with a torn left ACL, suffered on Tuesday during the Gators' win at Auburn. Egbunu's recovery time is projected at 10-12 months.

The redshirt junior has averaged 7.8 points and a team-leading 6.6 rebounds per game in 24 appearances and 19 starts this season.

"We're all disappointed for John," head coach Mike White said. "He's been playing really well of late, so it's a tough blow to him and our team. He's a great young man, and unfortunately injuries are a part of basketball. He'll be back even stronger."

In addition, freshman center Gorjok Gak has been diagnosed with a left foot sprain and is projected to be out for 10-14 days. Gak's injury occurred in practice on Monday afternoon.
