The reigning National Player of the Year is still working his way back from knee surgery that has kept the senior forward out of game action for the last month.
However, John Calipari just announced that Tshiebwe will practice today and could play tomorrow, though it would be in limited spurts.
John Calipari says Oscar Tshiebwe will practice today and will have a better idea on if he will play Tuesday vs. Michigan State— Jack Pilgrim (@JackPilgrimKSR) November 14, 2022
"My guess is he plays 3-4 minutes per stretch, if he plays. ... Knowing him, he wants to play."
In addition, Calipari said that sophomore forward Daimion Collins is expected to play tomorrow. Collins has been taking time away from the team to be with his family in Texas as they mourn the passing of his father, Ben Collins.
The Wildcats have been a bit shorthanded to begin the season with Tshiebwe and Collins out, while Sahvir Wheeler also missed the opener. Thankfully, Wheeler is back, and it looks like Tshiebwe and Collins could also return Tuesday.
Even with the injuries, Kentucky looked quite impressive in wins over Howard and Duquesne. Imagine what this team will look like when everyone is back and building chemistry.
