Jones has announced that Anthony Hickey has been practicing and will play Saturday. He is hopeful for Johnny O'Bryant, but said he isn't quite ready yet.
He may be by Saturday but I doubt they force the issue with Bethune Cookman in town. Twitter from press conference:
Jones: "Our players have been resilient. We've been able to play through some things to prepare us for conference play."
Jones: "On New Year's day, we had one of our more spirited practices of the season. Looking forward to hopefully getting JOB III soon."

Johnny Jones: We're hopeful Johnny O'Bryant will be back in "near future." Not sure about Saturday's game. #LSU
Jones: "I like what were averaging right now offensively in between 70 and 75 points. Defensively, we have to work on a few things."
Jones: "Bethune Cookman, only a few teams have been able to get away from them. They have two capable scorers, and we have to defend well."
Jones: "Rebounding is something that we put an emphases on every day in practice. Our guys know it's about attention to detail in that area.
