Patterson day-to-day with sprained ankle

Kentucky sophomore center Patrick Patterson still is listed as day-to-day with a sprained ankle.

UK released a statement Wednesday that said no further testing was needed on Patterson's ankle after the X-rays Tuesday night showed no further damage.

UK spokesman DeWayne Peevy said the injury was not a high ankle sprain, which would have required a longer rehabilitation period.

Patterson came down awkwardly on the ankle and missed the last nine minutes of UK's victory over Florida on Tuesday night.

He has started all 24 games this season and is averaging 17.8 points and 9.1 rebounds.
