Kentucky senior forward Reid Travis will return from a sprained right knee when the No. 2 seed Wildcats plays No. 10 seed Alabama in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament on Friday night in Nashville, Tennessee.
Travis, who is averaging 11.3 points and 6. 9 rebounds, has missed the last five games with the injury.
Calipari did not say if Reid would start, or how much he would play. Earlier this week, Calipari suggested he would likely ease Travis back into action whenever he did return.
