University of Kentucky freshman guard James Young sprained his left shoulder during practice Tuesday and is listed as day-to-day, the team said Wednesday.

The left-handed Young, one of Kentucky's six freshman McDonald's All-Americans, has been touted as one of the team's top three-point shooting threats this season.

Young joins sophomores Willie Cauley-Stein (stitches in hand) and Alex Poythress (hamstring) as players who have faced injuries early in UK's camp.

Kentucky makes its next public appearance Tuesday night with the annual Blue-White Scrimmage in Rupp Arena.
