John Calipari was asked about his starting point guard during Friday’s pre-Florida press conference, and his comments suggest Quade Green might be available tomorrow night against the Gators.
“We’ll see,” Calipari told reporters. “It’s probably game time, to see if he’ll get some minutes. It’d be nice if he could give us some minutes just so Shai can sit out five minutes a half or so, but we’ll see.”
When asked what Kentucky has missed in its three games with Green on the bench, Cal said, “One more perimeter shooter. One more guy who can make baskets. He leads, he talks. He’s one of the most talkative guys. It’s affected us, but it’s given us a chance to look at other things and other players.”
For what it’s worth, Green was spotted in practice gear before Friday’s practice, so that’s good.
