    Tai Wynyard is Injured, Now Also Suspended

    Yesterday John Calipari revealed a disk issue in Tai Wynyard’s back would likely keep him off the court for the rest of the year. It turns out that isn’t the only thing keeping Wynyard on the sideline.


    Kyle Tucker reports Wynyard has been suspended indefinitely. “Tai has been suspended from team activities due to a violation of team rules until further notice,” a UK spokesman confirmed.


    The forward from New Zealand appeared in eight games this season to average 1.0 points and 1.8 rebounds. After an injury and a suspension, it could be the last we’ve seen from Wynyard at Kentucky.

    I have heard he smokes weed.

    I also heard that he showed up at a frat party with a guy who had a gun on him who said he was "protecting" Tai and someone told Tai he would get in trouble for that. Maybe he did...

    That's all I got...

    Not surprising there is an issue. When a team underperforms, oftentimes there is an internal issue affecting the chemistry.

    Tai requires a security detail?

    Bizarre story. Perhaps they were trying to be funny but not really that funny. I don't know.

    He will probably be playing against Isaac next year. Hedge players can’t cause trouble.

    My line of thinking as well... That's just odd.

    I can't think of anything good that could come out of a UK basketball player having armed security at frat parties.

    I forgot all about Isaac. He actually would have been nice to have on this team.

    Smokes weed or distributes weed?

    There can't be many more reasons one would be needing armed security detail.

    I was thinking something along those lines when I heard about the "protection".
