Briscoe was removed from the starting lineup around 15 minutes before tip-off, and was replaced by Charles Matthews. CBS’ game crew later reported at the beginning of the game that Briscoe would not play.
A few reporters noticed him struggling to make it through the layup line:
Briscoe still noticeably limping as the Cats come back out-- I'm sure he'll try to go but based on what I've seen-- I don't know— Dave Buzz Baker (@buzzbaker) December 26, 2015
Briscoe looks very hobbled in the layup line.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_AJC) December 26, 2015
Briscoe has averaged 11.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 10 games for the 9–2 Wildcats.
