TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama senior forward JaMychal Green will be available to play Saturday against Mississippi State, coach Anthony Grant said Friday.
Grant said Green will "most likely be dressed" Saturday. He went on to say that how much he plays will be determined upon how he does in practice Friday.
Green was suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules just hours before tipoff of Alabama's game at LSU on Feb. 11. It was his third suspension in four seasons at Alabama.Green was reinstated for Monday's practice, but did not compete Thursday against Arkansas.
Green leads the team in points per game (14.1), rebounds per game (7.2) and blocks per game (1.5). The 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward from Montgomery, Ala., was a first-team All-SEC selection as a junior and entered the year as a potential second-round pick in the NBA draft.
Tony Mitchell, who was one of four Alabama players suspended in February, will not return to the team this season. Grant said last week he was unsure whether Mitchell would return for his senior year.Alex Scarborough covers Alabama sports for TideNation.
