UPDATE: PJ Washington posts video with cast off, wearing practice gear

As John Calipari predicted on his radio show Monday night, Kentucky forward PJ Washington did, in fact, get his cast off on Tuesday.

According to Dave Baker of WKYT, the Wildcat sophomore was in Wisconsin yesterday to see a specialist, where they took the hard cast off of his sprained foot.

His status for Kentucky’s game against Houston on Friday night, however, remains in question.

PJ Washington’s cast on his foot was removed yesterday, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Washington’s status for Friday night’s Sweet 16 game with 3-seed Houston is still in doubt as of Wednesday morning. Washington was back in Wisconsin for the second time in a week to see a specialist.

It is unknown whether Washington had another cast on, if he is in a walking boot or if he is cleared to practice.

Kentucky will head to Kansas City this afternoon and then have practice and media sessions on Thursday.

———-UPDATE———–

PJ Washington just sent out a video of him walking without a boot or cast… in basketball shoes and Kentucky practice gear….

And now, John Calipari has a response…

 

Houston… you have a problem.

      Cal will play his cards close the vest on this one to keep the opponent guessing. This throws off their preparation by requiring them to plan for 2 different scenarios. I’m not sure why this seems to be so lost on the masses.

      right, nugget? I agree. I want to know but I don’t want Houston to know, see let’s just all stay in the dark!

      And upon knowing (internally) that PJ was out the first weekend, i wouldn’t put it past Cal to throw the cast on PJ solely to up the guessing game. And then he threw in the scooter, for safe measure. Did you see PJ laughing while riding that silly thing? Otherwise (seemingly) it would’ve been cast from the get-go and no boot early on last week.

      Sure, there was no guarantee that they were advancing beyond the first weekend, but he thinks big picture. Maybe not but that would have been a pretty Cal move by Cal.

      Aaron Torres made a great point on his podcast Monday – Dook isn’t the same team since Zion came back. They lost their muscle, got their teeth kicked in, and suddenly the next 2 guys are not as confident as they were the day before Zion went out.

      Maybe Cal was that confident we could beat anyone in our first weekend pod and PJ being out would force other guys to step up or step aside. It’s a big gamble, but would you agree that if we couldn’t beat those 3 other teams we wouldn’t have won the title anyway? Now we have more guys with more swagger, and now the big guns just came out. Next level swag

      Relax. I have seen Clark Kent do this a thousand times. At the last moment he will tear off his cast, come into the game with the “S” on his chest, and save the day. You just watch. Krytonite, baby.

      I thought kryptonite was bad for Superman?
      Did you ever notice when the TV show starts, they shoot at Superman, and he just catches the bullets, but when they throw the gun at him…he ducks? Ha ha.

      I personally think this all started because of the specialist in Wisconsin! You don’t go to Wisconsin to see a doctor during March Madness when you play for Kentucky. You got to see the specialist in Lexington who is a Kentucky fan. Then, he wouldn’t have been in a boot or cast to start with. “All looks great to me!”

      lol yeah bc every sprain is exactly the same and everyone heals at the same rate. Common sense isn’t very common these days.

      He’s going down with his statement because he left himself so much wiggle room. Unless PJ comes out and blatantly says he didn’t have any pain, stuck in can’t be proven wrong.

    I knew that he would be fine, this is all strategy on behalf of our brilliant coach, the one and only coach Cal. I did this same exact thing years back with my star player on the church rec league team that I coached. Because of this we won the church rec league championship. Go cats, and go to strategic coaches like Cal and weneedpitino!!

    Hi stillbp. I’ve had several ask what injury that was supposedly ailing my star player. We used an extreme case of flaring hemorrhoids as the excuse, and right before tip off he ran out with the team. The other team was in disbelief. Go cats, and go preparation H!!



    • StillBP
      1:48 pm March 27, 2019 Permalink

      well there you are wnp. Flaring hemorrhoids is a good one…I mean not a good thing to have but a good rouse. Explosive diarrhea might be a good one if you need to do this in the future. I’m not sure if you’ve retired from coaching though.



    • nocode96
      2:06 pm March 27, 2019 Permalink

      The great ones never retire BP, they just step aside and let others learn. They still offer wisdom when needed, wnp is case in point. The great ones are always around when you need them!

      Well hey there stillbp, and nocode. Yea my days of coaching are over, but who knows I just joined a new Baptist church and they know of my legend and they keep asking if I would coach if they were to start a team. So heck I might give it one more go. Funny that you say that nocode because my brother in law took over coaching duties when I hung it up, and boy was it tough to mentor him to get him up to par. The poor fellers IQ is a solid 61, no exaggeration, but my goodness that fella knows basketball, he can darn near name every starting lineup for UK and most bench players from about 74 on up. He knows his stuff as far as basketball is concerned but if you ask him the who the last 3 presidents were he’d have to get the encyclopedia’s out. Go cats, and go encyclopedia’s!!

      4:12 pm March 27, 2019 Permalink

      Well grammarpolice it’s funny that you say that. But first off thank you for your kind words. Back to what I was saying, back in the 70’s people used to tell me that I was funny so I got this grand idea that I’d give it a go. So anyway I used to perform in bars in the evening time through the week, some of em would have open mic nights where I come from. People would hoop and holler when I’d get to carrying on, they loved me, so much so that people used to refer to me as wait for it, a local legend yet again. I was so funny that even the local radio station let me do my routine one day on air. Now the preacher man where I went to church didn’t like it that I was hanging out in bars making all the local drinks laugh so he set it up where I’d perform at nursing homes and churches instead. Go cats, and go local stand up comedians!!
