Will Wayne Chism Play?

According to a news report out of Knoxville, TN, Tennessee center Wayne Chism has not practiced the past week, while getting treatment for his injured ankle and hip.

He was a “game time” decision last Saturday in the Vols game at Kentucky.  He didn’t start the game, but Chism did play 30 minutes and finished with 12 points and 5 rebounds.

Another report from GoVols.com revealed that Pearl may be shuffling his lineup somewhat in anticipation for tonight’s game against the Dawgs.  More specifically, that Tennessee center/behemoth Brian Williams could play a lot more minutes tonight than he played in his first two games back from suspension.

Who knows if and how much Chism will play, but one thing’s for sure: The Dawgs have Bruce Pearl’s full attention.  The Vols remember getting dominated in Athens, and they are on the verge of the first 3-game losing streak of J.P. Prince’s career at UT.

With their backs against the wall, how will the Vols respond?

Nobody knows, but one thing is for sure – this should be a very intense game.

  1. I don’t doubt that we see more of Williams, but my guess is the Chism business is gamesmanship on the part of Pearl. Any man who will show up shirtless and painted to a women’s basketball game clearly has no problem with such activities.
