GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- No. 10 Florida will start the season with three players suspended.
Coach Billy Donovan says big men Dorian Finney-Smith and Damontre Harris have been suspended indefinitely, joining point guard Scottie Wilbekin on the sideline.
All three players are being punished for an undisclosed violation of team rules. They won't play in Friday's exhibition game against Florida Southern or the Nov. 8 season opener against North Florida.
Donovan gave no timetable for their return, meaning they also could be spectators when the Gators play at No. 20 Wisconsin on Nov. 12.
Making Florida even thinner, guard Michael Frazier II is out indefinitely with mononucleosis. And forward Will Yeguete (knee surgery) and guard Eli Carter (broken leg) are still recovering from injuries and likely will play limited minutes early in the season.
