DJ Wagner receives status update following exit vs. Miami
D.J. Wagner was “good” but “a little sore” after the Miami game, according to a report from basketball insider Adam Zagoria.
Wagner left the game with an ankle injury after starting at point guard. He accounted for 5 points and made 3-of-4 free throws before exiting.
The Wildcats were still able to get it done on the court, regardless of Wagner’s injury. Kentucky won 95-73 in Lexington as a part of the ACC/SEC Challenge on Wednesday.
