The Kentucky Wildcats are once again without Quade Green and Tai Wynyard.
Prior to facing the South Carolina Gamecocks, UK announced that Green, Wynyard and Jemarl Baker did not make the trip to Columbia.
Prior to our departure from Lexington, it was pre-determined that @Q_Green1 (back), @taiwynyard (back) and @jemarlbakerjr (knee) were not available to play today. They stayed back in Lexington to continue getting treatment and stay on top of academics.— Kentucky Basketball (@KentuckyMBB) January 17, 2018
Green continues to battle a back injury that will now cost him a third-straight game. Not even making the trip doesn’t bode well for him returning this weekend against the Florida Gators. He has not returned to practice since the loss to Tennessee on January 6th.
Wynyard is also battling a back issue that has kept him out most of January. Baker is recovering from knee surgery that has kept him sidelined for every game this season, and it’s unclear if he’ll play this year or simply redshirt.
UK did not announce the status of Jarred Vanderbilt, who is warming up with the team prior to tip off.
