Skal Labissiere is the Latest Injured NBA Cat

Bad news comes in threes.  That’s the case for Kentucky’s NBA Cats over the last week.

DeMarcus Cousins’ season ended Friday night after he tore his Achilles.  Just days later John Wall went under the needle to “clean up” an injured knee.  That injury will keep him out of basketball for 6-8 weeks.  Now Skal Labissiere will will miss some significant time.  The good news: it’s not the worst injury.

A shoulder strain has hobbled Skal since mid-January.  After further evaluation he’ll sit out 2-3 weeks.  It’s just another chapter to Skal’s up-and-down second NBA season.  He’s spent time in the G-League, and he’s started 18 games for the Kings.  Hopefully Labissiere’s weird year ends on a high note.

    Not for anything, but “under the needle” is an idiom for getting a tattoo. I think you mean “under the knife.”

    Also>>> “A shoulder strain has “hobbled” Skal since mid-January”??? So Skal is now walking funny and limping from a shoulder injury???




    past tense: hobbled; past participle: hobbled


    walk in an awkward way, typically because of pain from an injury.

    I could care less if he ever does anything in the league, guy was a major BUST for us. If he would of played to his potential a little bit, we could have been at least an elite 8 team.

      Give a guy a break man. Maybe somebody had him ranked a little higher than he should have been coming out of high school. Coming from an earthquake torn country and never having played against the type of competition he faced here, he was still and always will be, a UK Wildcat.

      Yes, give him a break. He played for us and is a CAT. If he struggled at times, it wasn’t because he chose to.

    Skal is in his second year, and he is doing fine. He is in the league, he is playing, he is learning, he is maturing. Most NBA players have up-and-down seasons, and minor dings are the norm.
