Injured point guard South Carolina guard Khadijah Sessions

TIM DOMINICK — Tim Dominick/tdominick@thestate.

South Carolina point guard Khadijah Sessions continues to rehabilitate from a sprained left ankle, but won't play in the No. 13 Gamecocks' Saturday game hosting Savannah State.

"She’s better, she’s got the cast off," coach Dawn Staley said after practice on Friday. "She's got that thing moving around a little bit."

Sessions sprained the ankle in the Gamecocks' loss to North Carolina on Dec. 18 and hasn't played since. She wasn't going to play against Savannah State no matter what her medical condition was, with USC keeping an eye on the looming SEC season.

Sessions remains on crutches and in a walking boot. The Gamecocks will continue to monitor her progress and hope she is ready by Jan. 2, when USC begins SEC play at Arkansas.

"We’re going to push for that," Staley said. "If she’s not ready for that, then we got to keep moving."

Redshirt freshman Tiffany Davis will continue to helm the point until Sessions returns.
