No. 11 Florida reinstates suspended Finney-Smith

Posted: Updated:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Billy Donovan has reinstated forward Dorian Finney-Smith, although he's unlikely to play Saturday against Arkansas-Little Rock because of an illness.

Donovan made the announcement Friday, adding that point guard Scottie Wilbekin and center Damontre Harris remain suspended indefinitely.

Donovan adds Harris is no longer practicing with the team because he's "not accountable, not responsible at all."

Finney-Smith sat out an exhibition game and two regular-season games for the 11th-ranked Gators - punishment for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

He practiced with the team during his suspension and probably will make his season next week. It will be his Florida debut.

Finney-Smith, a 6-foot-8 sophomore from Portsmouth, Va., averaged 6.3 points and 7.0 rebounds at Virginia Tech in 2011-12. He sat out last year under NCAA transfer rules.
