The Kentucky Wildcats may have both Mychal Mulder and De’Aaron Fox when they take on Florida.
Mulder is good to go after missing the last two weeks with an illness. Fox is healthy enough that he will try to play tonight, but will not start, head coach John Calipari said on UK’s pregame radio show.

As for Sacha Killeya-Jones, the freshman forward did not make the trip to Florida because of the flu and is out again. He missed Tuesday’s OT win over Georgia along with Fox. It would be a massive boost if Fox is able to play and be even close to his best.
If he’s unable to make an impact, Mulder could take on a larger role off the bench. The senior guard is averaging 6.5 points and 1.9 boards in 11.6 minutes per game. He ranks second on the team in three-point percentage (40.4%) among Wildcats who've appeared in at least 10 games.
Also, redshirt freshman forward Tai Wynyard has been dealing with an illness that may keep him from playing tonight. He was present for warmups though.
