John Calipari does not know when — or if — Jarred Vanderbilt will play basketball for Kentucky this season.
On Thursday, Calipari said Vanderbilt still hasn’t begun practicing with the team, and it is unclear if he will play at all in 2017-18. It will be up to Vanderbilt when he returns, Cal told reporters.
“It’s not going to be my call — it will be his,” Cal said. “He’s doing individual work right now, but he has not started practice yet. We’ll let it play out and if he thinks it’s good for him to play, then he will play.”
If Vanderbilt doesn’t join the team soon for the very important month of December, it’s hard to imagine he’ll ever be a big factor this season.
