As expected, the Kentucky Wildcats are without Derek Willis as they take on Vanderbilt.
The junior forward is out today with an injured ankle, and he didn't do any kind of workout while sitting on the sideline in street clothes and a walking boot, though did not have crutches.

As for the starting lineup, it's changed once again as senior forward Alex Poythress makes his return to the starting 5 spot.

Freshman forward Isaac Humphries started Tuesday's win over Alabama, but Poythress is far more agile and a better defender t matchup with Dores starting 5 Damian Jones. That should be a great matchup to watch.
