Jaylin Williams injury update: Auburn basketball releases statement

AUBURN — It appears Auburn basketball has received some good news.

Fifth-year forward Jaylin Williams suffered a right knee injury midway through the second half of Auburn’s 70-59 loss to Kentucky in Neville Arena on Saturday. He underwent an MRI on Sunday and the injury was not deemed to be season ending, per a statement from the program.

“Graduate senior forward Jaylin Williams was evaluated this morning and has a non-season ending knee injury,” the statement read.

The news is a relief for Auburn coach Bruce Pearl, who was not optimistic talking about the injury after the game: “We think he’s got to have something; we think it’s something,” Pearl said Saturday night. “(It was) not just a bang. He had a pivot.”
