COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Dawn Staley said injured forward A’ja Wilson has not practiced and most likely will not play when the fifth-ranked Gamecocks face Georgia on Thursday night.

Wilson sprained her right ankle in South Carolina’s last game, an 81-62 victory at Florida on Sunday. The 6-foot-5 Wilson appeared to step on a Florida players’ foot midway through the fourth quarter.

Staley said that “unless something miraculous happened” that Wilson would not be on the court for Georgia (10-6, 2-1 Southeastern Conference). Wilson leads the Gamecocks (13-1, 3-0) with 16.9 points a game and 31 blocked shots. She’s second on the team with 7.6 rebounds.

Staley said Wilson’s status remains day-to-day and she was unsure if the junior would be ready to play LSU on Sunday.
