After dealing with an onslaught of injuries last year, the Kentucky Wildcats aren't exactly off to a great start for next season.
According to KSR, incoming freshman forward Edrice 'Bam' Adebayo is dealing with a minor foot injury that has him in a walking boot for the time being, which UK has since confirmed.
A UK spokesperson confirms Adebayo has a minor left ankle injury, as KSR reported earlier this morning, but the boot only serves as a precautionary measure. There are no long-term concerns with the injury.
Adebayo arrived on UK's campus recently and has been apparently seen in a walking boot for his first week of classes. It's not uncommon for basketball and football players to be wearing these boots while dealing with minor injuries that wouldn't be enough to cost them game time, so we shouldn't worry too much about this. Minor injuries are a way of life when you're a college athlete, so this may be nothing more than a precautionary measure.
Hopefully Bam is able to get back on the court soon enough once summer workouts begin.
