Kentucky big man Nate Sestina will miss 3-4 weeks with a broken wrist suffered at practice, head coach John Calipari announced Wednesday.
The 6-foot-9 grad transfer from Bucknell is averaging 7.3 points and 7.2 rebounds for the No. 9 Wildcats.
“He’s out 3-4 approximately weeks and now we re-group, next man up,” Calipari said.
The timetable would put him back sometime in late December.
