Another injury to a key Kentucky starter.

The Kentucky Wildcats have been repeatedly plagued with injuries all season long, so it comes as no real surprise another key players may be down for significant time.

Junior forward Derek Willis was already dealing with several injuries coming into Saturday's game at Texas A&M, one of which being an injured ankle. Things didn't get better for him as he suffered what appeared to be another ankle injury late in the second half.

Willis had to be helped off thew court and into the locker room to be further examined. It looked bad enough that he won't return vs the Aggies, and it's unclear if he'll play Tuesday vs Alabama. The fact he's listed as questionable indicates it might not be as serious as it looked.

Here's a video of it:
