Kentucky freshman point guard Andrew Harrison downplayed an injury to his right arm he sustained late in Friday night’s victory over Kansas State in the NCAA Tournament.
Saying he believed he hyperextended the arm at the elbow, Harrison said, “I’ll just get a new arm.”
Harrison said he injured the arm when he reached in trying to strip the ball from Kansas State’s Will Spradling with 1:14 left.
“That didn’t turn out too well,” he said as he kept an bag of ice in place on his right elbow. “I’ll be all right.”
UK confirmed that Harrison injured his right elbow, but did not elaborate on the the extent of the injury. Harrison’s status was “day to day,” UK said.
Teammate Alex Poythress suggested the injury was not serious.
“It’s just a little bump,” he said. “Nothing too serious. He’ll be fine.”
