Is there no word on this yet at all? Even reading recaps nobody has even mentioned it maybe because not everything was seen on tv or even in the stadium. If most of you didnt see he injured either his knee calf shin or maybe it was just cramping in the second half as he limped off holding the leg fully extended. I wasnt immediately concerned especially as he came in later in the half. However, he had that potential and-1 that would have tied it from the right side but he missed it because of what I thought looked like his leg didnt support him as much as he anticipated going up and then he limped heavily to the free throw line where he drained both before going out again. Im sure that is what was seen on tv and even by most who were there in the stadium so nothing alarming or concerning stood out.
however, in my typical post-game head swirling with thoughts immediate disappointment/depression (a lot of good happened last night and the result is all you can ask for, but the way kentucky played the second half and for as garbage as their top recruits are now compared to how they will be later in the season and to get beat by polson and kyle wiltjer...i was still in my disappointment/depression), i sat in my seat until they made me leave to clean the section. Dez was one of the last players off the court still limping heavily, and at one point on his way out nearly collapsed to the floor...he needed two assistants to help carry him off the court with one of the nastiest grimaces on his face that i have seen.
i dont want to jinx anything or start any rumors but when he went out the second time they werent like massaging out a cramp or chekcing for a sprain or anything it seemed that they were running a few tests on his knee area...so god forbid its something serious or tendon-related.
Im just curious why nobody has mentioned this...did it simply go unnoticed, has nothing been posted yet, because as much as i hope and pray that everythings okay it was hard to believe he would be good to go in the near future just based on seeing his face and his exit.
