It looks like we won’t know the extent of Jarred Vanderbilt’s injury until later this coming week.
According to Rivals.com’s T.J. Walker, Vanderbilt got an x-ray on the leg he injured Friday night at the Jordan Brand Classic. However, the results of said x-ray won’t be known until Monday:

Vanderbilt, a 6-9 forward and five-star UK pledge, fell to the floor as he drove to the basket in the closing seconds of the all-star game at Barclays Center. He was down on the court for several minutes before being helped off while putting no weight on the injured leg.
It’s unclear if Vanderbilt will have an MRI at some point as well. That injury looked bad enough that they’ll want to make sure there’s nothing else wrong.
The good news is Vanderbilt is in good spirits and indicated he’ll be fine late Friday night. Let’s just hope this isn’t something that keeps him sidelined for much, if any of the offseason.
