Immanuel Quickley okay after injury scare

Future Kentucky point guard Immanuel Quickley had a scary moment in last night’s game vs. Mount Saint Joseph’s, going down with an apparent knee injury late in the fourth quarter. Thankfully, he’s okay, but was reportedly on the ground for a few minutes before getting up and walking off under his own power:

Have no fear; at his McDonald’s All-American Game jersey ceremony this afternoon, Quickley assured reporters he’s fine.

“I’m good, I’m good, I’m feeling better,” Quickley told USA Today High School Sports. “Nobody wanted to see me go down.”


What does Quickley make of Kentucky’s recent struggles?

“I’m not concerned,” Quickley said. “Coach Cal is a really good coach and I think the last time they struggled like this was the (2013-14) team that had Julius Randle and the Harrison twins and they made the Final Four. (This year’s Kentucky players) are freshman and they’ll get used to the grind.”

Kid knows his stuff. Drew will have an in-depth profile on Quickley for you once he returns from vacation, so stay tuned…

    They’re somewhere between the Nerlens team and the Randle team. Hopefully they trend toward the latter.

    I really like this kid as well as Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro. I’m excited for next season. Hopefully we will have some key guys stick around. Imagine if they stay for next season and the next. Having a veteran squad would be cool.

    I like this kid a lot! Great size and athleticism. We need this kid to be 100% next year so that way Tyler Herro doesn’t hurt our tourney run next year! BBN

    If Brad doesn’t declare and comes back will this kid even play?
