NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Ole Miss backup guard Jelan Kendrick will not play in the Southeastern Conference tournament and did not travel with the team to New Orleans.
The 6-foot-7 guard didn't play in the regular-season finale against Alabama and was not with the team at the beginning of the game.
He came into the arena and sat on the bench midway through the first half.
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy would not comment on Kendrick's future with the program on Wednesday other than to say it would be determined at a later date.
Kendrick is averaging 5.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in just over 20 minutes per game.
