John Calipari says De’Aaron Fox practiced Monday and “looked good”

It’s looking more and more likely that De’Aaron Fox will play Tuesday when Kentucky hosts Vanderbilt.

After saying earlier in the day he had no clue if Fox would play, John Calipari said during his call-in show that the freshman guard was able to practice today, which bodes well for his chances of returning to action after missing Saturday with a bruised knee.

“He did good,” Cal said of Fox, though he later added that the starters Tuesday night will have Isaiah Briscoe and Bam Adebayo will join seniors Derek Willis, Mychal Mulder and Dominique Hawkins in the starting lineup for Tuesday’s Senior Night game.

For what it’s worth, the current game line for Tuesday night is Kentucky by 13.5, a spread that seems awful big unless Fox plays...

And least we forget how critical Fox was in the first meeting between the Cats and Dores.
