Auburn might have its leading scorer back on the court just in time to play Kentucky.
Bryce Brown suffered a shoulder strain in the first half of last Wednesday’s loss to Texas A&M. He traveled with the team to Georgia as a game-time decision but did not play. Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said if Brown can participate in tomorrow’s full-contact practice, he’ll suit up against the Wildcats.
“I think Bryce is going to try to go today, but no contact,” Pearl told the media prior to today’s practice. “So he’s shooting a little bit, he’s moving a little bit and he’s got a better chance to play on Wednesday than he did obviously Saturday.”
While warming up for today’s practice, Brown didn’t look too injured.

Brown scores 16.6 points per game, good enough for fifth in the SEC.
