The Kentucky Wildcats will be without the services of Oscar Tshiebwe for what hopes to be a brief absence.

According to head coach John Calipari, Tshiebwe will have a minor knee procedure to “clean some things up.”

Calipari stated that this issue is not a big deal, but don’t expect to see the reigning National Player of the Year take part in Big Blue Madness this Friday.

Given Calipari’s history with injury management and how honest he tends to be, there’s obviously going to be some skepticism on how minor this really is until Tshiebwe is back on the court.

For what it’s worth, Kyle Tucker also reports that Tshiebwe’s issue is minor and won’t cost him game action.

Here’s to hoping this really is minor and the big man is able to return to the court sooner rather than later with the new season closing in fast.
