Coach Billy Donovan ruled Prather out Monday, saying the senior forward is still dealing with pain and swelling in his bruised right knee.
Prather, who is averaging 17 points a game this season and leads the Southeastern Conference in shooting at 62.4 percent, sat out Saturday’s 84-82 overtime victory at Arkansas. Dorian Finney-Smith started in his place and finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds.
Donovan says there’s no timetable for Prather’s return.
The Gators (13-2, 2-0 SEC) have won 24 in a row at home, tying the school record set between March 2006 and November 2007. They have won 11 straight at home against the Bulldogs (8-6, 2-0).
