ATHENS — Georgia coach Tom Crean said he doesn’t anticipate sophomore Rayshaun Hammonds being ready to play by the start of the SEC tournament next Wednesday.
“Right now I do not see him being able to play,” Crean said following a 64-39 Senior Night loss to Missouri at Stegeman Coliseum.
“There will be more definitive details later.”
Hammonds missed the loss to the Tigers after playing just five minutes last Saturday at Florida and missing last Wednesday’s loss to Auburn.
Hammonds is believed to have an injury to his right foot.
“Tonight, it finally hit us Ray is not out there,” Crean said after his team’s worst offensive performance of the season, and the program’s lowest scoring output since a 2004 loss to Vanderbilt.
“He is one of our two leading scorers, you have to guard him all over the court, he can facilitate, he’s our inbounder, then all the sudden he’s not out there.”
Georgia returns to action at 1 p.m. on Saturday at South Carolina in the regular season finale.
The SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament begins next Wednesday at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.
Georgia is assured of the 7 p.m. (eastern) game on Wednesday (TV: SEC Network) against Missouri, Texas A&M or Arkansas.
