Riding around campus the last couple of days on a motorized cart, it’s obvious the injury to Willie Cauley-Stein’s left ankle was more than just a sprain.
John Calipari said as much Thursday during a press conference for his new book, “Players First: Coaching from the Inside Out,” when he confirmed that Cauley-Stein went under the knife recently to fix the injury.
“He did have surgery,” Calipari said. “The best doctor in the world to do it, kind of like we did with Nerlens (Noel).”
Calipari expects Cauley-Stein to be off the motorized cart and back in the gym in a “couple months.”
“He’ll be fine,” Coach Cal said.
