The freshman forward suffered a sprained right hand in what Martin called a “physical” practice Tuesday and dressed for but did not play in the Vols’ 69-57 win over South Carolina on Wednesday night.
Martin said Stokes could have played in an emergency situation against the Gamecocks but remains questionable for Saturday’s game at Florida.
The Vols (12-12, 4-5 SEC) play the eighth-ranked Gators (19-5, 7-2) at 4 p.m. on Saturday (TV: WVLT).
Stokes has averaged 23.5 minutes per game since joining the team on Jan. 9 after graduating early from Memphis’ Southwind High School and enrolling midterm.
Stokes is averaging 7.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per game playing in the paint alongside junior Jeronne Maymon.
UT junior Kenny Hall stepped into the starting lineup in place of Stokes on Wednesday and pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds while also blocking three shots.
Stokes did not play in the Vols’ first meeting with Florida, a 67-56 UT win in Thompson-Boling Arena on Jan. 7 in both teams’ SEC opener.
