De’Aaron Fox was able to play Tuesday vs. Vanderbilt with a bruised knee, but clearly wasn’t back to 100%, as evidenced by his season-high five turnovers. Today, Fox met with reporters to preview the team’s trip to Texas A&M, and said his knee is “really close” to being back to normal.
“It’s really close. I’ve been in treatment every day. No telling, but I’m able to play, I’m able to run.”
Fox sat out the Florida game last Saturday. What did he notice from being on the bench vs. being in the game?
“Just seeing the game differently. It really slows down when you’re not playing. Just seeing stuff, being able to talk to my teammates and knowing what I need to look for when I get out there.”
I’ve said it before, but for Kentucky to be the best version of itself, it needs De’Aaron Fox at 100%. We haven’t seen that in over a month.
