Marquee freshman Nerlens Noel cited tendinitis in a knee as the reason he limped in Kentucky’s 74-46 victory over Portland on Saturday.
“That just came up in the warmups,” he said. “Just like soreness. I get it from time to time. Just through a lot of playing and stuff.”
Calipari sounded unconcerned. “If you want to play, fake it,” he said he told Noel. “Don’t limp. Play.”
