Auburn lost a lot of leadership when Allen Flanigan went out with an Achilles injury on Tuesday.
Flanigan is one of Auburn’s most talented players and was expected to be Auburn’s leader heading into this season.
His absence will leave a hole that will be filled with minutes from other players on Auburn’s roster.
He averaged 14.3 points per game last season after only averaging 3.2 points per game as a freshman. Flanigan is an NBA talent in the making.
Here are some players that could gain playing time while Flanigan is out.

Cambridge was buried in the depth chart at the SG/SF position heading into this season. Flanigan's injury gives Cambridge an opportunity to display his talent.
2. Chris Moore

Chris Moore has been having a terrific offseason according to the coaching staff. He's slimmed down, and continued to develop his outside shot. Moore could emerge as Auburn's true glue guy.

Jasper should expect to see most of his time at shooting guard. Jasper will have to step up both offensively and defensively at that guard spot with Flanigan out.
4. Jaylin Williams

Williams excites me as an NBA prospect. If Auburn chooses to, they can slide Williams up to the three spot in Flanigan's absence.
