Kentucky freshman Jemarl Baker to be ‘out a little bit’ after minor knee procedure

Not everything was positive during Kentucky coach John Calipari’s press conference following the Wildcats’ exhibition win over Thomas More on Friday night.

The Kentucky coach announced following the game that freshman guard Jemarl Baker is out indefinitely after undergoing a minor knee procedure.

“He had surgery, so he’ll be out a little bit,” Calipari said on his radio show after the game.

Baker is entering his first season with Kentucky. He is a 4-star guard out of Los Angeles who committed to the Wildcats on April 11. He was also expected to be one of the top shooters in Kentucky’s 2017 class.

If Baker is out too long, the Wildcats could decide to use a redshirt season for him.
