LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Kentucky forward Ramon Harris is out indefinitely after injuring his left foot in an exhibition game on Saturday.
Harris, who started both of the Wildcats' exhibition games, injured the foot during the team's 82-63 victory against Seattle. An MRI on Sunday revealed the stress fracture.
The 20th-ranked Wildcats open the season Tuesday night against Central Arkansas in the opening round of the 2K Sports College Hoops Classic at Rupp Arena.
``It hurts us,'' coach Billy Gillispie said. ``He knows what we're trying to do. He hasn't produced a lot of points or rebounds, but he has been a good member of our team and we need him back.''
Harris played sparingly after joining the team last December appearing in 12 games.
Sophomore point guard Derrick Jasper remains sidelined while recovering from microfracture knee surgery during the offseason. He was cleared to practice in October, but there is no timetable for his return.
Jasper 27 games as a freshman, averaging 3.9 points and 3.6 rebounds per game and made the all-Southeastern Conference freshman team.
