John Calipari's last update was that his star point guard had returned to practice, but was still iffy to play Thursday night. According to ESPN's Dan Shulman and KSR's Matt Jones, it looks like Ulis will in fact play tonight.
Tyler Ulis practiced the last two days, looks like he'll go tonight for UK. He was definitely missed in the Illinois St. game.— Dan Shulman (@DShulman_ESPN) December 3, 2015
Tyler Ulis will play tonight— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) December 3, 2015
It's interesting that Shulman notes Ulis has practiced the last two days. Calipari originally said Ulis wouldn't practice Tuesday, so maybe Ulis is either further along in his rehab than expected, or Cal is simply being coy and not showing his cards before tonight's game.
Either way, this is great news for the Cats as they look to keep their No. 1 ranking and undefeated record intact.
