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.

    While he’s sitting in the whirlpool, he can read about the life of Coach Rupp.

    They are trying to figure out how to get his foot out of his mouth.

    Yep, he can read up about that old coach that time passed by. You know the one that called his black opponents coons and the n word. The one that only coached one black player because no others wanted to play for him. The one that gave up coaching altogether because he could no longer compete nationally at the top with his lily white teams. Let’s face it, Keon was right and it was despicable the way so many racist right-wingers in this fan base treated him for merely speaking the truth…that maybe UK should re-consider what it means to have the old codger’s name up on the building they now play in. Much like all these confederate statues, UK needs to modernize and keep his glorification in the history books, not on public display.

    River City Wonder? Sounds like a Louisville fan posting on here? Regardless, you show your absolute ignorance with this post. I am NOT a racist, just because I defend coach Rupp, but more to the point the actual FACTS show he was not a racists. Stay in River City where you belong, oh by the way there are actually more UK fans in the city of Louisville, than Louisville fans.
