Kentucky coach John Calipari said Sunday that junior forward Nick Richards is still “day-to-day” and hoped he could practice with the team Sunday and Monday ahead of the season opener against Michigan State Tuesday night in New York.
“If he’s timid with it, he shouldn’t play — not in this game,” Calipari said. “We will just have to see.”
Richards apparently sprained his ankle in Kentucky’s 80-53 win over Georgetown College in the first of two exhibition games.
Richards didn’t play in the Wildcats’ 83-51 win over Kentucky State Friday night.
