Kentucky will play its third game without Quade Green

Kentucky will have to face South Carolina without Quade Green tonight, the third game in a row the freshman point guard has had to miss due to back problems.

According to @KentuckyMBB, Green, Tai Wynyard (back), and Jemarl Baker (knee) stayed in Lexington to “continue getting treatment and stay on top of academics.” Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has performed admirably in Green’s absence, running the point and playing 39 minutes in each of the last two games. Hopefully he’s up to the task again tonight.

For what it’s worth, Kentucky’s tweet made no reference to Jarred Vanderbilt, who is reportedly warming up with the team in Columbia. As always, stay tuned…

    Hey, I’m 50, not in good shape, and have several things that hurt. Can I be on the UK Basketball team and not play?

      So you’re saying people should risk careers and play through injury for a regular season game? Sound logic. And no, no you can’t play

      He had been medically cleared to play. Think a GM is going to be hesitant to draft him?!
