Kentucky will be without its leading scorer for its Monday night game at Vanderbilt, the school confirmed.

Maci Morris, who has been battling through pain from a bone bruise in her left knee, will not play.

The junior guard injured her knee on Jan. 4 at Texas A&M. She played 20 minutes in each of the past two games against Georgia and at Florida.

Morris, who averages 15.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game, will have her knee evaluated again later this week.

After the Monday night game against the Commodores (4-14, 0-4 Southeastern Conference), Kentucky is off until Sunday when the Cats (9-9, 1-3) take on No. 9 South Carolina at Rupp Arena.
