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.
