With the first game of the NIT approaching on Wednesday, Georgia may be without its leading scorer.
Head coach Mark Fox said Frazier, who has a sprained left ankle, hasn’t been able to practice and is still in a walking boot. The boot won’t likely come off until Wednesday afternoon, with the team then making a determination on whether Frazier can play or not.
Frazier is averaging 17 points per game and helped spark Georgia to an SEC Tournament quarterfinals win over South Carolina on Friday. He sprained his left ankle in Saturday’s 93-80 semifinals loss to Kentucky.
"A little bit before the game we’ll make a decision," Fox said. "He won’t come out of the boot until (Wednesday) afternoon."
Georgia is hosting Belmont in the first game of the NIT on Wednesday at 7 p.m. after missing out on a second consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance.
Frazier, who spent his sophomore season in a reserve role, emerged in a major way and is arguably Georgia's best player. In addition to his team-leading scoring average , he's posted 4.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
