Rick Pitino says he doubts Dieng will play against UK

Mike Rutherford of Card Chronicle tweeted that Rick Pitino said he doubts that injured center Gorgui Dieng will be ready for the Kentucky game on Dec. 29 at the KFC Yum Center.

Dieng broke a bone in his wrist taking a charge in the first half of Louisville’s semifinal win over Missouri in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament in the Bahamas. Dieng was in street clothes for U of L’s loss to Duke in the tourney’s final.

The center had a screw placed in the bone on Monday and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
