UK coach John Calipari said Monday evening on his radio show, Alex Poythress did not practice earlier in the day.

Calipari said Poythress is day-to-day after missing the Florida game with a swollen knee, not his surgically repaired knee. Earlier in the day UK assistant John Robic described Poythress as day-to-day but he said he expected him to play Tuesday night against Georgia.

Calipari said the knee tightened up after Thursday's practice. Poythress practiced Friday but the knee swelled Saturday.

Kentucky and Georgia tip at 9:00 p.m. Tuesday night on ESPN.
