Coach John Calipari said TyTy Washington (ankle) could remain unavailable for Saturday's game at Arkansas, Jack Pilgrim of Kentucky Sports Radio reports. Washington missed his second straight game Wednesday against LSU due to the ankle injury, and his absence is in danger of stretching to three games. Sahvir Wheeler's (undisclosed) availability remains similarly in question as Kentucky could remain shorthanded in the backcourt Saturday.
