LEXINGTON, Ky. - John Calipari said last week prior to Kentucky's season opener that sophomore point guard Ryan Harrow had been experiencing flu-like symptoms. A week later, Harrow is still not 100% and continues to suffer from fatigue, Calipari said.

It seems unlikely Harrow will play in UK's home opener Friday against Lafayette.

On Thursday, Calipari was asked if too much pressure is to blame for Harrow's health concerns. Calipari said he didn't think so and that he just needs Harrow to play with more energy than he's been able to give.

Harrow's predecessors at point guard under Calipari include five consecutive first-round NBA draft picks: Derek Rose, Tyreke Evans, John Wall, Brandon Knight and Marquis Teague.

Monday, Calipari said Harrow would have blood tests done to help uncover the cause of Harrow's lack of energy. Thursday, Calipari said he had not received any information on the results of those blood tests.
