Tennessee junior shooting guard Scotty Hopson, who suffered a sprained left ankle in last Tuesday's practice and didn't play at Auburn on Thursday, will miss the Vols game against Alabama on Saturday in Thompson-Boling Arena.
UT coach Bruce Pearl announced Hopson would not play following Friday's practice. Hopson stretched and shot with the team, but did not take part in any drills or activities.
Hopson leads the Vols in scoring (16.5 points per game), 3-point field goals made (35) and minutes (28.9 per game).
Pearl said senior Josh Bone would make a second start in place of Hopson against the Crimson Tide.
