De’Aaron Fox hasn’t practiced all week; Slim chance of playing vs Florida

A not-so-optimistic report on UK’s star point guard.

Fox is out warming up...

De’Aaron Fox may not play in Gainesville after all.

According to SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker, Fox has not practiced all week, and his chances of playing tonight are “slim.”

The good news is Fox at least traveled with the team and is present at the arena...

UK has been calling Fox a game-time decision all week and continue to as of Saturday afternoon. It looks like the team will at least test him in pregame warmups, but if he’s not been practicing, it may be best to play it safe and keep him out.

Previous reports suggested Fox did in fact practice this week after missing Tuesday with a stomach bug. However, it looks like he may have simply been riding a stationary bike while at practice.

If Fox doesn’t play tonight, it’s hard to see the Cats beating the Gators, at least based on how both teams have played recently.
