Another Basketball Wildcat Injured

The injury bug appears to have bitten the basketball Wildcats again. Multiple sources tell 27 SportsFirst that guard Jodie Meeks will be out of action indefinitely, suffering from a stress fracture in his groin area. The extent of the injury isn’t known, but the initial assessment has Meeks missing up to four weeks.

Meeks, a sophomore from Norcross, Georgia, hasn’t practiced since the day after UK’s stunning loss to Gardner-Webb last week. UK officials would neither confirm, nor deny, the story. Coach Billy Gillispie isn’t scheduled to speak to the media until next week.

The 6-foot-4 guard scored 34 points in UK’s exhibition game against Pikeville. Meeks was selected a freshman All-American by Collegeinsider.com.

The Wildcats host Liberty next Wednesday.
