Pack unsure if Fells will play at Florida

N.C. State is listing wing Courtney Fells as a game-day decision for Saturday’s game at Florida as he continues to be bothered by an ankle injury.

“We’re hoping he’s going to be able to play,” coach Sidney Lowe said.

Lowe said Fells, who ranks third on the team in scoring at 11.3 points per game, may not be fully healthy until he gets time to rest and undergo lots of treatment.

N.C. State has a week off after the Florida game to prepare for its Jan. 10 ACC opener at Clemson.

Although he has played N.C. State’s last four games, Fells has been hampered by the injury he suffered Dec. 6 against Davidson, which caused him to miss two games.

Fells did not practice Friday, but Lowe said point guard Javi Gonzalez is back in practice after missing two games with an ankle injury.

Javi Gonzalez....another NC State athlete the INS should look at.

What a completely ignorant and inappropriate comment. I hope the blog administrator recognizes this and deletes it.

The observer is a joke. Gameday against a big SEC opponent and there is nothing about the game except a quick blurb that says Fells is questionable.
