Injury Will Sideline UK Forward Sestina 3-4 Weeks [VIDEO]
Boy, has the injury bug been plaguing the University of Kentucky Wildcats or what? It was Nick Richards early in the season and then we had E.J. Montgomery sitting out. Both of them suffered ankle injuries.
Next thing you know, Ashton Hagans was not performing at 100% thanks to some nagging leg issues.
Sophomore guard Immanuel Quickley missed the Utah Valley game because of a chest injury.
There was also freshman Kahlil Whitney's dislocated finger. And let's not forget that freshman Dontaie Allen has yet to play a game for the Wildcats as he recuperates from a torn ACL.
Now we can throw senior forward Nate Sestina into the mix--just not too hard as he begins the healing process on a wrist injury.
Yep, another Kentucky Wildcat has been moved to the figurative Big Blue Recovery Unit.
According to ESPN, Sestina, the senior transfer from Bucknell, fractured his left wrist during a Tuesday practice and will be sidelined for the next three to four weeks.
If it's three weeks, Sestina won't miss the CBS Sports Classic match-up against 10th-ranked Ohio State (and all hands--and wrists--will need to be on deck for that one).
If it's four weeks, he'll be back in time for the Louisville game. No further explanation needed.
Here's what UK head coach John Calipari had to say about the injury:
We wish Nate a speedy recovery as Big Blue Nation gets ready for the 'Cats next tilt which comes Friday at 6PM against UAB.
