JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WKYT) - Kentucky head coach John Calipari says he expects PJ Washington to play Thursday against Abilene Christian.

Washington will see a specialist before the team makes a final decision on his status. His x-rays were negative.
Kentucky is a significant favorite as a 2 seed in the first round matchup against 15-seed Abilene Christian.
Kentucky plays at 7:10 p.m. on WKYT.
