LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - PJ Washington’s cast on his foot was removed yesterday, according to a source familiar with the situation.
This comes after Kentucky's top scorer and rebounder continues to recover from a foot sprain he suffered in the SEC Tournament.
Washington was back in Wisconsin for the second time in a week to see a specialist. We don’t know for sure who that specialist is, but Green Bay is the headquarters of Dr. Robert Anderson who former Packers Coach Mike McCarthy called “the best in the business” when it comes to foot and ankle injuries.
A Wednesday afternoon social media post will likely give Big Blue Nation optimism about his chances of playing. Washington would tweet a short clip walking in basketball shoes, hinting that he may be able to resume basketball activities.
The tweet led to John Calipari saying 'Uh oh ...' in a retweet.
Calipari would later go on Jim Rome's radio show to say Washington didn't practice Wednesday, and his status is still unknown for Friday's game. Calipari labeled him as "day-to-day."
Washington was seen Wednesday afternoon wearing a walking boot as the team prepared to travel.
The Wildcats leave for Kansas City Wednesday afternoon and will have their NCAA mandated media sessions Thursday afternoon.
