Correction: Patterson sprained right ankle

Let’s correct an error in the Kentucky-Florida game story. UK big man Patrick Patterson sprained his right ankle in the second half.

The injury occurred when Patterson blocked a shot by Kenny Kadji and came down on the Florida player’s foot.

X-rays were negative, meaning there was no damage to Patterson’s ankle beyond the sprain. After the game, UK said his status would be evaluated day by day.

By the way, UK confirmed that Patterson did not suffer the dreaded high ankle sprain, which takes longer to heal.

Patterson sustained an inversion ankle sprain, UK said.

It is not a high ankle sprain. It is an inversion ankle sprain.
