Want some good news about Jarred Vanderbilt’s injury? It’s not to his left foot, which he’s injured multiple times, most recently in September. Kyle Tucker of SEC Country is reporting that Vanderbilt’s injury is instead an ankle sprain, which he suffered during practice yesterday.
Additionally, a source tells Matt Jones that the injury is not as bad as originally thought and Kentucky is hopeful Vanderbilt will be able to play again this season.
What does that mean for the SEC Tournament? While we don’t know the severity of the sprain, I can’t imagine John Calipari would risk playing Vanderbilt with the NCAA Tournament around the corner, especially given how little he thinks of conference tournaments in the first place.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
