Auburn senior Allen Flanigan is sitting out of preseason practice for an indefinite amount of time for personal reasons, Bruce Pearl said Tuesday.

Flanigan, rising senior guard, is likely to be a mainstay in the Tigers rotation this upcoming season. The Tigers started preseason practice on Monday, as did many other teams across the country.

Flanigan averaged 6.3 points and just over 3 rebounds per game last season for the Tigers. Auburn, which lost in the second round to Miami last season, is set for a bounce back year despite losing some important players such as Walker Kessler.
