Kentucky guard Baker is out 3 months after left knee surgery
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky says freshman guard Jemarl Baker will miss three months after having surgery on his left knee.
The school announced Thursday that Baker underwent the operation last week. He began feeling soreness in the knee during preseason and had surgery after an evaluation. Wildcats coach John Calipari said that the 6-foot-4 guard had surgery before arriving on campus, but it didn't heal as well as hoped.
