Speaking on his weekly radio show Monday night UK coach Billy Gillispie indicated that point guard Derrick Jasper could return to action soon, possibly as early as Saturday's game with U-A-B.
Jasper has been sidelined all season rehabbing from microfracture knee surgery.
Gillispie said Jasper practiced most of the time Monday, calling it a physical, high intensity practice. He said Jasper handled most of it.
The UK Coach said Jasper practiced well enoguh last week to lead Gillispie to think about playing him at Indiana but UK doctors would not allow it.
