Kentucky freshman forward Nerlens Noel suffered a knee injury during the second half of the team’s 69-52 loss to Florida Tuesday and was carried off the floor by his teammates.
Noel was chasing down Florida guard Mike Rosario with about eight minutes left in the game when he got hurt. Noel successfully blocked Rosario’s layup, but his momentum carried him into the base of the basket. His right knee appeared to hit the padded area straight on, causing him to fall down to the ground yelling in pain.
According to SI’s Andy Staples, Noel was taken out of the arena in a wheelchair and transported to a hospital for examination.
Noel had eight points, six rebounds, and three blocks in 23 minutes before leaving with the knee injury.
