Following a solid 10-point, 5-rebound, 2-assist performance against Michigan State in the Champions Classic, Kentucky sophomore guard Immanuel Quickley gave fans a bit of a scare on social media on Wednesday.
On his Instagram page, the Havre de Grace, MD native posted a picture of his shooting wrist in a brace on his story with several ‘face palm’ emojis.
The timing was odd, especially considering Quickley played 30 minutes in Kentucky’s 69-62 victory and closed out the game on the floor. In fact, the sophomore guard grabbed the game’s final defensive rebound and dribbled the clock out.
Today, though, Quickley took to Instagram once again to let fans know he was okay.
“I’m fine all good,” the Wildcat guard said in a comment.
To follow up Quickley’s comment, Kentucky head coach John Calipari was asked about his sophomore point guard’s status during his pre-Eastern Kentucky press conference this afternoon.
The response? Not direct, but extremely light-hearted.
“He’s got to shoot it less,” Calipari said with a laugh. “He just keeps shooting it. Your wrist starts hurting.”
