Kentucky standout power forward PJ Washington is slated to have the cast removed from his left foot Tuesday but his status is in doubt for Friday’s Sweet 16 game against Houston.
That was the word from coach John Calipari when he appeared on his radio show Monday.
“We don’t know if PJ is going to play this weekend yet,” Calipari said during the show.
Washington, a sophomore, missed Kentucky’s first two games of the NCAA Tournament due to what the school termed as a “sprained foot.”
Washington suffered the injury against Tennessee in the Southeastern Conference tournament semifinals on March 16.
Washington is averaging 14.8 points and 7.5 rebounds this season. He was a first-team All-SEC selection and is viewed as an NBA first-round draft choice should he decide to leave school.
