Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball head coach John Calipari gave an update on freshman forward Jarred Vanderbilt's injury during Thursday’ media availability leading up to the Wildcats’ matchup with the Harvard Crimson Saturday afternoon.

“I don’t know. It’s not going to be my call, it will be his. He’s doing individual work right now, he’s not started practicing. We’ll let it play out,” Calipari said.

“We’re probably experimenting a little bit more than just preparing for the next game,” Calipari said, as he was asked what he was focusing on with extended practice time between games.

John Calipari’s son, Brad, who is a sophomore guard on the team, had this to say about what the team has learned about themselves as they’ve picked up momentum over the past few games.

“We grind out games and really fight as a team,” he said.

Brad’s teammate, P.J. Washington, who is a freshman this year, echoed his coach when asked about Vanderbilt.

“Jarred hasn’t been practicing,” Washington confirmed.

The freshman forward also said that they’ve mainly been practicing on sets they can be successful in as well as their defense.

Kentucky tips off against Harvard at Rupp Arena on Saturday at 3:30 P.M. EDT.
