On Tuesday night, key Kentucky big man Reid Travis went down with a knee injury. Fortunately, it isn’t as serious as it could have been, but he’ll still miss some time.
He missed his first game on Saturday, as his Wildcats blew out Auburn 80-53 in Lexington to move into a tie for the lead in the SEC standings.
Before the game, though, Travis’s teammates made sure to show him some love, going over and hugging and high-fiving him before tipoff:

The Wildcats stepped up in his absence, and they’ll have to continue to do so, especially if they want to beat Tennessee in Knoxville next weekend.
For now, though, it’s all about getting Travis ready for the postseason, and barring any setbacks, he should be ready to go.
