Kentucky is preparing to play No. 1 seed Wichita State on Sunday without point guard Andrew Harrison, who suffered an elbow injury against Kansas State on Friday.

Harrison tallied seven points and five assists in No. 8 seed Kentucky’s 56-49 win over Kansas State on Friday. He was injured late in the game and reportedly had his elbow wrapped in ice afterward.

“We’ll see. If he can play, he’ll play,” coach John Calipari told the Courier-Journal on Saturday. “We’ll prepare today as though he’s not.”

“It’s pretty sore,” Harrison told reporters. “It’s day by day. Hopefully I can go tomorrow. We have so much talent on this team. It’s not just me. People can take my spot.”

The candidates to play the point for the Wildcats include Andrews’ twin brother, Aaron, and Jarrod Polson and Dominique Hawkins.
