UK head coach John Calipari released a statement via social media Wednesday with an update on freshman forward Nerlens Noel.
Noel underwent surgery early this week to repair an ACL tear sustained while playing for the Cats in UK’s, 69-52, loss at Florida on Feb. 12.
Statement released on Twitter and Facebook by John Calipari:
“Got a call from Nerlens yesterday and put it on speakerphone so he could talk to the team. The surgery went well and he’s doing fine. It was great for his teammates to hear from him after surgery and I think it helped Nerlens too. I can’t wait to see him back on the court.”
