KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is considering whether freshman guard Robert Hubbs III should undergo season-ending surgery on the left shoulder that has bothered him for much of the year.
Volunteers coach Cuonzo Martin said Thursday that "it's still 50-50" on whether Hubbs will have surgery.
Hubbs, a 6-foot-6 guard from Newbern, Tenn., hasn't played in either of Tennessee's last two games. When he has been on the floor, Hubbs has worn a brace on his left shoulder.
Hubbs is averaging 5.0 points, 1.5 rebounds and 18.3 minutes per game this season. Martin said the injury has limited Hubbs' driving ability and that "he's not the player he's capable of being" because the shoulder is hindering him.
Tennessee (10-4, 1-0 SEC) carries a four-game winning streak into Saturday's game with Texas A&M (10-4, 1-0).
