Arkansas guard Keyshawn Embery-Simpson made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 14.8 seconds remaining in the Razorbacks' 69-66 win over Vanderbilt on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, in Fayetteville.

Arkansas freshman guard Keyshawn Embery-Simpson will be a game-time decision for the Razorbacks' game against Florida in the SEC Tournament on Thursday, a team spokesperson told WholeHogSports.

He injured his left foot at practice on Tuesday and wore a walking boot Wednesday at the team's practice in Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

Embery-Simpson has played in all 31 games this season, averaging 4.3 points on 34.1 percent shooting. He scored 3.9 points on 34 percent from the floor in 18 SEC games.

Embery-Simpson reached double figures in scoring four times during the regular season - Colorado State, Austin Peay, Ole Miss, LSU. He added a then-career high 16 points in the loss to the Rebels and finished with 16 in Arkansas' win in Baton Rouge to open February.

If he is unable to play, the Razorbacks will likely employ an eight-man rotation. Should the starting lineup remain as it has the previous five games, sophomore guard Mason Jones would be the lone guard off the Arkansas bench.
