Derek Willis has a “pretty bad sprain”

Screen Shot 2016-02-20 at 8.11.00 PM

With 8:30 left in the second half, Derek Willis crumpled to the floor in pain. Willis rolled his ankle, and had to be helped off the court

When asked after the game, John Calipari said he heard Derek has a “pretty bad sprain.” There’s no timetable for his return.

Where does Kentucky go from here?

“Next man up,” Calipari said. “Maybe it’s Charles Matthews. Next man up. We’ve been doing it all year.”

Tyler Ulis agreed.

“It hurt, but you know, we can’t think about it,” Ulis said. “The next man’s gotta step up. Isaac came in, Charles came in, everybody came in and gave good minutes for us and did a good job.”

Has this team ever been 100% healthy this season?

    High ankle sprain. Bad and sad…

    I was just noticing a few weeks ago that several of our guys wear low tops. I wish they’d give more protection to those ankles and go with the hi tops.

    High top shoes were invented to prevent this. Not sure why Derek is playing in low tops.
