Auburn reveals status of star guard Allen Flanigan ahead of game vs. Florida
Auburn had been working star guard Allen Flanigan back into the mix after he recovered from Achilles surgery prior to the season.
Then, Flanigan missed the Tigers’ midweek game at South Carolina due to COVID-19 protocols.
There were some concerns he could be held out again on Saturday night against Florida, but the Tigers revealed via Twitter on Saturday afternoon that Flanigan would indeed be available for the game:

Flanigan has only appeared in 2 games so far this year after returning from injury. He’s averaging 6.5 points, 5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1 assist per game in that limited action.
We’ll see how much playing time he gets against the Gators on Saturday night.
