LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky may be without guards Derrick
Jasper and Jodie Meeks on Tuesday when the Wildcats travel to
Meeks sat out Saturday's 79-73 double overtime win against then
No. 13 Vanderbilt with a strained hip flexor. Jasper sprained the
medial collateral ligament in his left knee after colliding with
teammate Perry Stevenson.
Coach Billy Gillispie said neither player practiced on Monday,
but both would travel with the team and be game-time decisions.
Both players have been hobbled with injuries most of the season
for the Wildcats. Meeks has missed eight games this season because
of various injuries, while Jasper missed the first 10 games while
recovering from microfracture surgery in his left knee.
