Bishop out with wrist injury

Kentucky forward Azia Bishop will miss 3-4 games with a small fracture in a bone in her left wrist. The sophomore forward injured her non-shooting wrist when she fell to the ground going in for a fast-break layup against Alabama on Sunday. Bishop also hit her head hard on the floor. Alabama doctors advised UK to hold her out as a precaution.

“The blow to her head was not a major concussion or anything, so that was good news,” Coach Matthew Mitchell said. “She’s in a splint right now and we’re looking at 10-14 days, so that’s probably going to be about three or four games.”

Bishop will be able to shoot and do some cardio for the next week or two, Mitchell said.
