UPDATE 1:57 PM: While initial reports were Basketball Cat CJ Fredrick had broken his leg and had surgery, Coach John Calipari has tweeted to clear up any speculation as to what occurred. Fredrick had a minor procedure and is slated to be ready for the season.
.@CJ_fredrick had a minor procedure today that needed to be done at some point before the season. He and his family decided to be proactive and have it done now rather than wait. We are all happy it went well and he will be back better than ever and ready to go for the season!
