Seniors Sam Perry and James Mays and junior Julius Powell, have physical problems and might miss the game.
Mays, a 6-9 forward who was Clemson's top scorer in the
opener against Furman, has an eye injury and back spasms. He was
questionable for the game as of Wednesday. He did not practice Tuesday
or Wednesday. Mays had a double-double against Mississippi State last
Perry, who started in the Clemson win against Mississippi State
last year, will have knee surgery on Friday and will miss 2-3 weeks of
action. He is available on an emergency basis.
Powell, who played as a forward off the bench against the
Bulldogs last year, had stress tests on Wednesday to determine the cause
of an irregular heart beat. His status as of this writing was unknown.
Powell has also had problems with a knee injury that required surgery
over the summer.
This could be the first game Perry has missed in his Clemson
career as he has played 101 in a row, including the victory over Furman in
the season opener. Perry averaged 3.6 points and 2.7 rebounds per game
last year when he started 28 games and played in all 36. Powell had injury
problems last year and played just 25 of the 36 games and averaged 2.6
points per game. He did not play against Furman in the season opener.
Mays has never missed a game due to injury.
