Fox will be game time decision

Malik Monk confirmed that point guard De’Aaron Fox “did a little thing” during practice Thursday but that’s all he would say.

Fox’s status for Saturday afternoon’s showdown with Florida has been in doubt since he apparently banged his knee in a collision with teammate Isaac Humphries during Tuesday’s win over Missouri.

“He didn’t practice yesterday. He did a little bit of stuff and I haven’t been in there to see. But I would guess that he’ll be a game-time decision,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said Friday.

Calipari said he wasn’t exactly sure how Fox hurt his kneed but confirmed it was not “sprained or anything.” The coach said it was a bruise.

Who plays the point if Fox cannot go?

“I don’t know. We’ll have to figure that one out. What do you think?” Calipari asked a media member who posed the question.

The media member suggested senior Dominique Hawkins.

“That’s not a bad idea,” Calipari agreed.



  1. Cats 3 point dogs at home?? Amazing the evolution of this team from preseason final 4 contender to SEC champion pretenders. This is a carryover of the Alex Poythress effect.

  2. Pretenders ?? Last time I checked they were tied for the conference lead genius. After their10 point win today I think, not sure ’cause no one is as smart as yourself, they lead the conference. Tell me coach, did you have to restrain yourself and not gallop to your computer when UK went down 12 early on?
    You’re a real piece of work coach Mike .

  3. Cats were not underdogs in this game, not today, nor yesterday when Vegas line opened.
