Forward Arnett Moultrie is “probable" for Saturday’s game at Auburn after suffering a
shoulder injury against LSU on Tuesday.
Stansbury said there was some swelling on the 6-foot-11 Moultrie’s left (non-shooting) shoulder, but MRI tests came back negative.
Moultrie, who’s averaging 16.5 points and an SEC-leading 10.8 rebounds per game, was limited in Thursday’s practice.
“He’s a tough kid, and he wants to play, so he’ll push through a little bit of pain. I couldn’t say that for everybody," Stansbury said.
Renardo Sidney sat out Thursday’s practice with back spasms, which he also experienced prior to the LSU game.
Stansbury said the 6-foot-10 Sidney, who’s averaging 10.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game, received an injection on Wednesday.
“We’ll see where he is. I don’t know (if he’ll play) right now,” Stansbury said.
MSU (19-7, 6-5 SEC) has lost two in a row. Tipoff against Auburn (13-12, 3-8) is 7 p.m.
