He has worn a soft brace during all of UT’s games and practices this season.

 

Hubbs appeared in 12 contests for the Vols, averaging 5.0 points and 1.5 rebounds in 18.3 minutes off the bench. He did not play in Tennessee’s two most recent games and will not play Saturday vs. Texas A&M.

 

Following the surgery, he will immediately begin the rehabilitation process. No timetable on a return has been set.
