Report: Walker tears ACL

Florida forward DeVon Walker tore his ACL and is expected to miss the 2014-15 season, according to a report by

The Gainesville Sun reported that DeVon Walker’s ACL tear happened on Friday. The timeline of his recovery makes it unlikely that Walker will see the court during the 2014-15 season.

Walker was expected to see minutes on the perimeter for the Gators this season. The length of his 6-6 frame created havoc on the defensive end and would’ve earned a spot in the rotation and competed for a starting spot.

He started seven games last season as a sophomore at Florida, averaging 2.4 points in 12.1 minutes per game. He shot 30.2 percent from behind the three-point line, and three-pointers accounted for 19 of his 25 made field goals last year.

This could mean even more of an opening for freshman forward Devin Robinson to make an impact.
