INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Kentucky forward Willie Cauley-Stein had a walking boot protecting his injured left ankle Saturday and coach John Calipari said the sophomore was doubtful for the regional final against Michigan.

“He’s acting like he thinks he can do something,” Calipari said. “I would be stunned if he played in this game.”

Cauley-Stein left Friday’s win over Louisville with about 13 minutes left in the first half and did not return. He told trainers he felt something pop in his ankle.

The 7-foot forward, considered a top-15 pick if he decides to leave for the NBA after this season, averages seven points, 6.2 rebounds and 24 minutes a game for the eighth-seeded Wildcats (27-10).

They play second-seeded Michigan on Sunday with a trip to the Final Four at stake.
