TyTy Washington will not play for Kentucky versus Mississippi State tonight (ESPN, 9pm ET) due to an ankle injury, a source told ESPN. Availability for Kansas this weekend is yet to be determined.— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) January 25, 2022
Washington suffered an ankle injury early in Saturday’s loss to the No. 1 Auburn Tigers. He had to be helped off the floor and into the locker room for further testing, though he was later seen walking around without assistance.
Losing Washington is a tough blow, but Kentucky should still be able to win tonight at home vs. Mississippi State. Saturday at No. 5 Kansas is a whole different ballgame, as it’s hard to see this Kentucky team winning at Lawrence while not at full strength.
