Checking in from Auburn Arena a little more than 40 minutes before tip against Ole Miss.— Josh Vitale (@JoshVitale) February 25, 2020
Isaac Okoro is on the court getting stretched out/warming up the same way he did Saturday. No official word yet on whether he'll play.
Auburn Tigers forward Isaac Okoro is listed as questionable for tonight’s game with the Ole Miss Rebels on The Plains in Auburn Arena. Okoro is listed as an NBA lottery pick in most mock drafts, and is one of the biggest impact players in the SEC this season. DraftKings Sportsbook has him installed at +350 to be the first overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Okoro pulled his hamstring on February 12th for the No. 15 Tigers in a win over Alabama. He’s missed the last three games, including two losses at Missouri and at Georgia. Auburn defeated Tennessee 73-66 in their last game on Saturday, February 22nd. The Tigers are 23-4 this season, and 10-4 in the SEC, and would likely be closer to the Top 10 without those two drops last week without their star player.
Right now the Tigers are an 8.5 point favorite at home over the Rebels, with that likely to change depending on the status of Okoro. The forward is averaging 13.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists on the season.
