Jemarl Baker still day-to-day with knee issue

How Kentucky was used to seeing Jemarl Baker

During all the Wandale Robinson excitement, UK Basketball assistant coach Joel Justus held a press conference to preview tomorrow’s exhibition game vs. Indiana University of Pennsylvania (remember basketball?). When asked, Justus said redshirt freshman guard Jemarl Baker is still “day to day” with a knee issue that held him out of Kentucky’s exhibition vs. Transy last week.

“He’s kind of day to day. He’s working out. I’m not really sure what his status is. Jemarl’s working hard, he’s getting better. I think when he’s ready, he’s ready.”

Hopefully we’ll find out more tomorrow night.

    Sadly I’m betting this kid never plays but gets some sort of “medical” scholarship that allows him team manager status with no tuition worries….

    We’re gonna need him n nights when we shot from deep like we did against transy. He’s the last guy in rotation imo so not worried he has time but knees are no joke hope he and the staff figure it out!

    Don’t get it. Looked fine in blue white game. Was a little winded but played well. Was he not healed and now he’s hurt it again?

    Sorry to say this kid seems like a Jarad Vanderbilt type. Won’t see much of him going forward I don’t think.

    Micro fracture surgery is usually a career ending procedure. Who was the kid that played great his freshman year, had micro fracture procedure, and ended up transferring to unlv I think?? Never was the same. Tall kid, played PG for tubby
