Tyler Ulis Injury Update

Good news on Tyler Ulis' elbow injury that looked scary when it happened.

The Kentucky Wildcats got a major scare Friday when Tyler Ulis went down with an injury vs the South Florida Bulls.

During the first half, Ulis was attempting to go for a loose ball, but Bulls forward Angel Nunez dove for the ball and landed on Ulis arm, causing it to slightly bend backwards. Ulis was immediately favoring the arm before heading to the locker room to be further examined, but it looks like there's no major damage:

If Ulis misses Monday, the Cats should still be able to beat Illinois State, and the same holds true Thursday at UCLA. The Bruins have struggled mightily this year, but still have enough talent to make this a game if the Cats are struggling and Ulis isn't playing.

We'll keep you posted if there are any updates on this, but don't expect to see Ulis playing Monday night. He may be healthy enough to, but the Cats would be wise to not risk another injury and/or further injuring the same elbow.
