Kentuckys only returning player from last years roster that actually got any playing time, Keion Brooks, is still fighting through a leg injury and could be out two more weeks, per John Calipari.
Keion Brooks returns this season as the captain and 'veteran' of this roster as he is entering his sophomore season in Lexington. He played in all 31 games last season, including 6 starts, averaging 4.5 points and 3.2 rebounds a game.
“He’s been hurt,” Calipari said. “He’s hurt his leg. I think he’s going to be out a couple of more weeks. I’m literally on the court with all new guys everyday and I see him, I’m like ‘how long?’ because we need him back. We need his leadership. We need his basketball sense. We need his knowledge of what these kids are going to face." Cal continues with, "Keion is a big piece of what we do. But he has not practiced yet and I believe he’s going to be out a couple of more weeks.”
