Auburn Basketball Veteran Jaylin Williams Out Indefinitely With Injury

AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - Last Saturday when the Tigers took on Kentucky in loss, 70-59, they also lost Jaylin Williams to a knee injury, as he is now ruled out indefinitely. 

Going in for a dunk in the second half, Williams landed awkwardly after the failed attempt, and laid on the ground for quite some time. He was helped back up by athletic trainers and guided him into the locker room. He did not play the rest the game. 

Williams went into MRI the morning after and had his knee injury evaluated as “non-season ending.” However, head coach Bruce Pearl knew the injury was concerning to him and had something to say about it during his post-game interview. 

“We think it’s something. Not just a bang,” said Pearl. 

William’s injury may make some impact on the Tigers throughout the rest of the conference stretch this season, The starting guard has averaged 13 points and 4.7 rebounds so far this season. 

The Tigers will be back on the road against the Georgia Bulldogs this Saturday at 5 p.m. CST They will have another road game against the Tennessee Volunteers on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 6 p.m. CST. Their next home game won’t be until Saturday, Mar. 2, at 3 p.m., where they will look for revenge against the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
