MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Chris Douglas-Roberts, Memphis' leading

scorer, did not practice because of a sprained left ankle Monday as

the Tigers prepared for the NCAA tournament regional semifinals

against Texas A&M.

"The kid says he's going to play, but you never know," Memphis

coach John Calipari said in a conference call with reporters.

Douglas-Roberts went down in pain with about eight minutes to

play in the Tigers' 78-62 victory over Nevada in New Orleans on


Memphis athletic spokesman Bob Winn said Monday that

Douglas-Roberts' ankle would be re-evaluated each day.

"He's got three days to try to get well," Winn said.

Calipari said he was unsure if the injury would keep

Douglas-Roberts on the sidelines Thursday night in San Antonio.

"You can't play in a game like this at 75 percent, 80 percent.

And especially the way we play them," he said. "If you're

breaking down defensively or you're not able to stay up with the

pace of the game, it's just you've got to sit back and let these

other guys go."
