Kentucky’s lone rotation player returning from its 2019-20 roster is dealing with an injury.
According to a UK spokesperson, Keion Brooks Jr. has been “limited” in practice and team activities, with the sophomore forward being “treated and evaluated daily.”
“Keion has been limited in team activities recently due to an injury,” the University of Kentucky announced. “He’s being treated and evaluated daily.”
Despite the limitation in practice, Kyle Tucker of The Athletic is reporting that the injury is “nothing major” and can be chalked up to UK head coach John Calipari simply working the players hard, nothing more.
“I’m told by multiple sources nothing major,” Tucker said. “Cal practicing hard.”
Brooks appeared in all 31 games for the Wildcats during his freshman campaign, including six starts. In that span, the 6-foot-7 forward scored 138 total points, had 99 rebounds, totaled 13 blocks, posted 11 steals and had six assists. He also led the team in steals, rebounds and blocks in two games and produced five double-figure scoring efforts.
