LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel is scheduled for an MRI on his left knee after X-rays were negative.
The 6-foot-10 forward was hurt during the No. 25 Wildcats' 69-52 loss at No. 7 Florida on Tuesday night. Noel ran into the padded basket support with about eight minutes remaining after blocking Mike Rosario's layup from behind.
He landed awkwardly on the leg, dropped to the floor and started screaming while clutching his knee. The top recruit left the arena in a wheelchair with his leg in a brace and was taken to a hospital for tests Tuesday night.
Noel returned home with the team and will have the MRI on Wednesday.
The nation's leading shot blocker at 4.5 per game coming in, Noel had eight points, six rebounds and three blocks before getting hurt.
