At the start of his press conference today, John Calipari was walking with a noticeable limp.
He was asked if he was on the injured list?
“I’m going to say my good hip, because I’ve had one hip replaced, my good hip has gotten bad here,” he said. “So I’m trying to figure out what to do. I’m doubtful before every game right now.”
He was kidding about the “doubtful” part, by the way. He’ll be in Chapel Hill on Saturday when UK plays North Carolina.
Calipari underwent a hip replacement back in 2004 at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
