    At this point, I don’t expect to see Jemarl Baker in a Kentucky uniform ever.

      That’s my fear for the Kentucky program. Having him would’ve been ideal for this season and the next to help provide depth, outside shooting, and eventually be the experienced guard this program regularly lacks.

    We knew this over a week ago.

    I agree that he will probably never play for UK. His particular knee problem is one of the worst. I also don’t think Jarrod Vanderbilt will play in the NBA due to his injuries either.

      Glad we have medical professionals in the comments section who have had a chance to check this kid out. Jumping to conclusions much, people?

    I forget who it was, but a couple of years ago when baker committed someone else who was a top shooter cut us out of his recruitment (rightfully, it seemed, at the time). I just wonder what might have been if we had a shooter last year…

    Wish him the best whether he stays or goes. Hope he just gets healthy enough to compete.

    What exactly is his knee problem?

      This is swelling in the other knee, not the one surgically repaired.

    Yeah – I’m getting a little irritated with all these mysterious injuries our players are getting. I understand the whole PHI thing – yaddy yaddy – but c’mon, what kind of knee injury keeps you out this long? What kind of surgery did he have? What was the deal with Vanderbilt’s injury? I still don’t know what was wrong with his foot…

      Not mysterious to University of Kentucky coaches, staff and teammates though… And that is what matters. In the days of HIPPA and all these so-called health privacy laws and regs, Cal is using every possible method to close out the public to this knowledge. His handling of Vando got him drafted. If he would have come out and shown his disappointment that Vando was hurt and that he feared for him, do you think that the kids name would have been called on draft night? Praise Jesus that Cal is truly what he says he is when it comes to these KIDS!

      Thanks for enlightening me to the fact that the UK staff knows what’s going on with the player’s injuries. Let me get this straight tho – you don’t think NBA teams know what injuries these players have? And you believe that because Cal wasn’t outwardly critical of Vando, that the NBA didn’t know what was going on? Matt Jones knew Cal was frustrated, but the NBA didn’t? Idk man…doesn’t seem like there’s much to lose by saying ‘hey, Jamarl has some swelling in his non injured leg…he’ll be ready for the season.’
