Georgia Tech forward Quinton Stephens plans to play Wednesday against Miami in a critical road matchup. Stephens rolled his right ankle in the Yellow Jackets’ win over Boston College Saturday and did not return to the game.

“It’s pretty painful right now – the swelling just came back up – but (I’ll) keep doing treatment, treatment overnight,” Stephens said before Tech’s Monday practice.

Stephens injured the ankle previously, against Notre Dame Jan. 28, and played in the next game. Stephens, a senior, has started all 25 games and is fourth on the team in scoring at 10.2 points per game and second in rebounding at 7.8 per game, both career-high averages.

He has been particularly productive in recent games. In Tech’s previous ACC six games before the Boston College game, in which he played just five minutes before the injury, he averaged 11.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.
