Jemarl Baker’s Status for the Bahamas is Uncertain

Kentucky fans have waited more than a year to see what Jemarl Baker can do in a Kentucky basketball jersey.  They might have to wait a little longer.

While meeting with reporters this afternoon, John Calipari revealed the shooting guard has missed about four or five days of practice with swelling in his knee.  Calipari is unsure if Baker will be at 100 percent, “full go” in time for the Cats’ trip to the Bahamas.

The sophomore sharpshooter from Los Angeles missed his entire freshman season after undergoing knee surgery in October.  It’s unclear if the swelling that’s kept Baker out of practice is in the same knee.

    Maybe he should consider changing his jersey number??

    Man you hope the injury bug doesn’t gut the team like it did last year.

      Hate it for him – but was thinking the same thing.

      Man I was just joking, having swelling after that injury is common. They just started doing real scrimmaging and he probably hasn’t played at this level since before his surgery. Doesn’t happen in all cases but it’s common

    Having gone through an ACL repair, I can say that it was common for me. Every time I returned to an activity, tried a new one or increased intensity, it went through another bout of swelling, inflexibility and pain. Assuming it’s the same knee, I think the odds are that it’s “growing pains”. Hope it’s nothing worse! I’m looking forward to seeing Baker’s game.

    No reporter asked which knee? Or did Cal decide to play games?
