Willie Cauley-Stein spoke to the media after the game about his health and his thoughts on the “platoon” system that Kentucky has used the summer. First, he confirmed his comments on Matt’s pre-game show regarding his health:
WCS says he's basically cleared now but UK wants to look at one more CT scan to be sure. A week away. Lyles says two weeks behind that.

When asked about how he will fit in with this year’s team, Willie said, “it’s not (my) job to figure out. All I can do is play as hard as I can.” He does like the 5-in, 5-out strategy though, calling it “pretty genius” and praising the way it keeps players fresh.
We’re looking forward to getting you back, Willie.
