For the first time today, Kentucky coach John Calipari admitted he was worried about senior Jon Hood.
He has not played since suffering a concussion in practice. He was not on the bench for two games in Rupp Arena and Calipari did not take him to Brooklyn for Sunday’s game with Providence because he did not want him flying in a plan. The coach did not say if Hood would make the trip to Dallas for Friday’s game against Baylor.
Calipari saw the blow Hood took to his head. He practiced after that and had headaches, according to the coach.
“I know our doctors and trust them and they are going to be really conservative (clearing Hood to practice and play),” Calipari said. “I am concerned but I know he is in great hands and no one is going to ask him to do anything he shouldn’t do.”
