Kentucky star point guard Tyler Ulis injures elbow in win vs. South Florida

It’s currently unknown when the most important player on Kentucky’s basketball team will return for action.

UK starting sophomore point guard Tyler Ulis was injured in the first half of No. 1 Kentucky’s 84-63 win against South Florida on Friday.

Ulis was reaching for the ball in a scrum when he was apparently hit by an opposing player’s elbow amid the chaos. He came up clutching his right arm; Kentucky is calling Ulis’ injury a hyperextended right elbow. UK said Ulis’ status for now is “day to day.”

Wildcats freshman Jamal Murray led his team with 21 points. Fellow first-year stud Skal Labissiere put up 17. Kentucky has beaten 39 consecutive unranked foes.

Tyler Ulis could be out for a day or two … or perhaps a week. Wait and see. (USATSI)
