UK head coach John Calipari announced this morning that freshman center Willie Cauley-Stein will not be available tonight in Tuscaloosa and did not travel with the team. The freshman center underwent what UK officials called a “minor procedure” on his knee earlier this week.

On the season, the 7’1” Cauley-Stein is averaging 7.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game.
