Joe game-time decision vs. South Carolina
Arkansas guard Isaiah Joe (1) shoots against Texas A&M defender Jay Jay Chandler during a game Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020, in Fayetteville.
FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas guard Isaiah Joe’s status for Wednesday’s game against South Carolina remains uncertain, according to a report.
CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, citing Razorbacks coach Eric Musselman, tweeted earlier today that the sophomore will be a game-time decision. Joe is dealing with knee inflammation that arose following Arkansas’ win at Ole Miss on Jan. 11.
According to a release prior to the Razorbacks’ game against TCU in the Big 12/SEC Challenge, Joe reaggravated the injury in the Jan. 22 loss at Mississippi State.
He did not play against the Horned Frogs after starting the first 52 games of his Arkansas career.
A Fort Smith native, Joe is averaging 16.8 points per game on 36.7 percent from the floor and 34.4 percent from 3-point range. He is also second on the team with 29 steals.
Tipoff on Wednesday is set for 7:30 p.m, and the game will air on SEC Network.
