The latest on PJ Washington’s recovery from finger surgery

The latest on PJ Washington’s recovery from finger surgery

PJ still has some work to do before being fully cleared. PJ Washington is primed for a big sophomore season, but first, he has to get healthy. Washington is recovering from surgery on a torn tendon in his pinky finger suffered during the middle of his freshman season. He was able to play through the injury as UK made it to the Sweet 16, then go through the pre-draft process before deciding to return to school. Shortly thereafter, Washington underwent surgery to repair the damage. The hope was he’d be back to full health by the time UK leaves for the Bahamas trip, but there’s still some...

As of now, Washington is set to be one of just eight scholarship players on the roster for the 2018-19 season. However, UK is expected to get Ashton Hagans on campus once he officially reclassifies into the 2018 class. Then there’s the case of Reid Travis, the highly-touted Stanford transfer that is strongly considering UK. It sounds like Washington would...

Kentucky Basketball: What to watch for this summer

Kentucky Basketball: What to watch for this summer

Kentucky is expected to be good next year, but that doesn’t mean they have everything figured out this offseason. With the NBA Draft decision deadline having come and gone, we now know a lot more about next year’s Kentucky team than we did before. We have the vast majority of the roster figured out, knowing that Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel are gone, and PJ Washington is returning. But we still have questions that will eventually need answers. Here are the top three questions facing the Wildcats going into the summer. Reid Travis watch John Calipari’s team i already deep and...

John Calipari gives injury update on PJ Washington

John Calipari gives injury update on PJ Washington

Washington should be healed up soon enough. PJ Washington’s surgery on his broken pinky went well, and John Calipari told reporters that he will likely be out for a month. “Good time to do it,” UK coach John Calipari said Thursday, according to the Courier-Journal, while speaking during a satellite camp at Ryle High School. “Do it right away. Take him four or five weeks to get it all healed, but he’ll be fine.” But Washington should be fine to make the trip and play in the Bahamas with the team, a good sign for the forward who is expected to be one of the team’s leaders next...

Washington was battling a finger injury suffered during his freshman season. We already know PJ Washington is returning to UK for his sophomore season. However, there was still some mystery in regards to the finger injury that was going to require surgery. It looks like Washington just got that wrapped up. Surgery went well today — PJ Washington (@PJWashington) June 6, 2018 Washington averaged 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game in his first collegiate season. He led the team in total rebounds with 211 boards while recording 31 blocks. He has the potential to make a monster...

Kentucky Basketball: Two-and-dones don’t improve their draft stock as much as you’d think

Kentucky Basketball: Two-and-dones don’t improve their draft stock as much as you’d think

Calipari has had seven guys return for a sophomore season. They haven’t fared all that well at improving their draft stock. Kentucky has a high number of returning players next year, relatively speaking for the John Calipari era. A few of them, Quade Green, Nick Richards and PJ Washington, are coming back to improve their draft stock. Granted, Richards and Green didn’t have stable draft stocks, but this influx of sophomores begs the question: How do sophomores fair in the NBA Draft under Calipari? The short answer is not well. It’s not necessarily Calipari’s fault, but there’s...

UK cracks the top 5 in CBS and ESPN preseason polls

And there could still be two HUGE additions to the roster. I know, I know. It’s June. But with college basketball rosters around the country finally starting to settle around Wednesday’s NBA Draft deadline, new NCAA polls are coming out for the 2018-2019 season. While there is variation in the top 25 in each poll, blue bloods are dominating the top spots. After PJ Washington announced his return, the Kentucky Wildcats seem to have solidified their position in the top 5 across the board, coming in at No. 4 on the CBS poll and No. 3 on ESPN. Of course, many believe that Kentucky’s...

Kentucky tied for 4th-best odds to win 2019 NCAA Tournament

An early look at which teams are favored to win it all in the 2018-19 college basketball season. John Calipari and his Wildcats appeared to have been big winners at the NBA Draft deadline. While the losses of Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel sting, the return of PJ Washington and potential addition of Reid Travis would be massive for UK’s title hopes for next season. Well, that’s assuming they get Travis, which may not necessarily be the lock it’s made out to be. The latest odds from Bovada to win it all next season have UK coming in a tie with Gonzaga for the fourth-best odds to...

Where Wildcats stand in new 247 and NBC preseason polls

A look at some of the newest top 25 polls now that the NBA Draft deadline has passed. The early analysis on Kentucky’s 2019 roster is that the Wildcats are going to be very good, with only a chance to get better. That’s how 247 sees it, as they ranked Kentucky third with a chance to be higher if they get Reid Travis and/or Ashton Hagans. They gave Kentucky a projected starting five of Immanuel Quickley, Quade Green, Keldon Johnson, PJ Washington and Nick Richards. That’d mean five-star big man E.J. Montgomery and four-star guards Tyler Herro and Jemarl Baker would all be coming off...

There are big things on the horizon for Kentucky Basketball. The roster for the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team is closer to being finalized but there are still two pieces to the puzzle that John Calipari would like to solidify. Yesterday the three players that were testing the NBA waters without hiring an agent made their final decisions.

The decisions have been made, and now we’re left to address what Kentucky will look like next year. With Wenyen Gabriel and Jarred Vanderbilt out the door and PJ Washington returning, Kentucky has lost it’s best rebounder and one of its most versatile players.

Calipari, Vanderbilt and Gabriel comment on NBA decisions

Calipari admitted Vanderbilt “has been pulled in two different directions.” Finally, the NBA Draft decisions have been made. The Cats entered Deadline Day with essentially four players who had yet to make their NBA decisions. They got off to a hot start with Stanford transfer (and potential Cat) Reid Travis announcing he’ll play one more season of college ball, and it looks like it will be in Lexington. Not long after, PJ Washington announced he too was returning to school. Shortly thereafter, Wenyen Gabriel announced he was remaining in the NBA Draft, ending his UK career....
