LEXINGTON - Kentucky sophomore guard Ramel Bradley broke his left hand in practice Monday and coach Tubby Smith isn't sure how long the injury will sideline him.
Smith announced on his weekly radio show Monday night that Bradley broke his hand when he hit the basket support.
"Ramel was just Ramel. He made a bad play and slammed his hand into the basket support," said Smith.
Bradley is averaging 8.3 points, 1.7 rebounds and 18.2 minutes per game. He's shooting 41 percent overall and 31 percent from 3-point range.
Smith said an assistant coach told him to be careful because he could hurt his hand that way when he hit the basket support. The UK coach said the next thing he knew, Bradley was out of practice and trainer Dave Kindy told him Bradley had broken his hand.
"We will know more tomorrow about if he needs a pin (in his hand to repair the bone)," Smith said. "He is an energizer. We will miss that. We don't know how long he will be out."
