Coach Billy Donovan says Carter did not practice Wednesday because of a sprained left foot. Carter was hurt in practice Nov. 20 and has missed two of four games since. In the two games he did play, he missed 16 of 18 shots, including nine of 10 from 3-point range.
Donovan says, ''I would say he's not playing. That could change. ... He says he wants to try it. He wants to go. I've talked to him and he does not feel, right now with his foot, that he can get through a practice, and if you can't get through a practice, it's awful hard to play.''
Carter started Florida's first two games, averaging 14.5 points on 10-of-16 shooting.
