Basketball Presser Notes

Ryan Harrow is still battling an undisclosed illness

The mysterious illness that caused Ryan Harrow to miss Kentucky's loss to Duke continues to be an issue with no definitive timetable for a return to the court.

Kentucky coach John Calipari said Thursday his sophomore point guard is improving from what has been described as something resembling the flu with significant fatigue issues.

"Doing better,” UK coach John Calipari said. “Worked out yesterday, but he's just not ready to go 100 percent. I just told him, 'Until you're able to go 100 percent…' He worked out with our weight coach, strength and conditioning. He said he did pretty good, but you're not right yet.

"I just want him back. We we're a little bit short last game. We know it. But the same thing: you've got to look at the kid's health first. Just get yourself right, and let's go. If he's not in there today, then he's not going 100 percent. I just got off the treadmill, so I don't know. He knows that unless he's ready to go…You know. I'm happy he's working out with the strength coach, and we'll go from there.”
