The heartbeat of Kentucky’s team, sophomore point guard Tyler Ulis wants more than anything to be healthy for this younger Kentucky squad. As such, he has said his elbow is OK and that it’s not bothering him too much.
But Kentucky coach John Calipari knows Ulis isn’t completely healthy, no matter how much both of them wish that was the case.
“Yeah, I don’t believe so,” Calipari responded when asked if he thought Ulis was healthy, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal’s Kyle Tucker. “But I think he’s not one that’s going to worry about that.”
Ulis sustained the injury when Kentucky played South Florida about a month ago. He hyper-extended it, according to ESPN broadcasters that day, chasing down a loose ball. He left the game and didn’t return.
The Wildcats will need him Saturday against Louisville, as they look to bounce back from a loss to Ohio State in the rivalry matchup.
“It’s like anything else,” Calipari said of the injury, according to Tucker. “You have to adjust a little bit of how you’re playing and what you’re doing.”
