Immanuel Quickley has since responded in the comments section with “I’m fine all good,” so it must be pretty minor.
In addition, Big Blue Express is reporting ths brace is due to Quickley jamming his finger.
I’m told that Immanuel Quickley jammed his finger and they pulled it back and had him wear the brace after icing it. https://t.co/cwgLhCeRG4— Big Blue Express (@bigbluexpress) November 7, 2019
It certainly appears Quickley will play Friday vs. EKU, but if not, that likely means more minutes for Johnny Juzang.
The Wildcats have battled numerous injuries this year, the latest being to sophomore guard Immanuel Quickley.
Yesterday, Quickley posted a picture on his Instagram story of his wrist in a brace:
This comes just a couple days after the Michigan State game in which Quickley put up 10 points, 5 boards, and 2 assists. Quickley even played in the waning minutes of a close game against the Spartans, so if one had to guess, it can’t be too serious.
This might be just a precautionary measure, similar to Nick Richards’ air cast on his ankle before the New York City trip.
Between Richards’ ankle, Quickley’s wrist, Ashton Hagans’ leg, and Dontaie Allen still recovering from a torn ACL and broken collarbone, Kentucky isn’t having the greatest luck when it comes to injuries, and we’re just one game into the new season.
