Sahvir Wheeler is still day-to-day with a neck injury, John Calipari said during a Zoom conference with local media Friday morning.

The UK point guard was injured early in the loss at LSU after being blindsided by a screen near halfcourt.

“He’s still day-to-day. I doubt — I don’t think he’ll practice today,” Calipari said. “The neck is still bothering him. I know he wants to play against Georgia, but it’s still day-to-day.”

Wheeler transferred to Kentucky from Georgia, so playing against the Bulldogs has to be something he was looking forward to.

Kentucky and Georgia will tip off at 6 p.m. ET. Saturday at Rupp Arena with coverage on the SEC Network.
