For now, it appears CJ Fredrick won’t be sidelined for too long.

According to KSR’s Jack Pilgrim, Kentucky Wildcats guard CJ Fredrick is set to miss multiple weeks due to a finger dislocation.

The good news is there is reportedly no ligament damage, so we should see Fredrick back on the court sometime in January.

With Fredrick out, true freshman Adou Thiero and Illinois State transfer Antonio Reeves figure to get more minutes.

After a beatdown in Missouri last night, the Kentucky Wildcats have a quick turnaround as they will welcome the Louisville Cardinals to Rupp Arena on Saturday afternoon.

There is a chance the Cats could be one wing player short however, as CJ Fredrick suffered a dislocated finger in the first half of last night's game, and was ruled out after the half.

John Calipari was asked about the injury to Fredrick in the post-game press conference, and didn't give much insight into where his availability is come Saturday.

In fact, we got a good ole’ “Haven't seen him,” to carry us through.

It’s been an up-and-down season for Fredrick thus far after missing the entire 2021-22 season due to a torn hamstring. He’s currently averaging 7.2 points per game on 41.8% shooting, including 38.8% shooting from deep.

Things are looking rough around the UK program, and with the gauntlet this team has in January things need to start getting fixed fast.

Let’s hope they won't have to go through that without one of the best shooters on the team in Fredrick, who can still become a very important piece for this team.
