Tyler Ulis will play for Kentucky tonight

The Kentucky Wildcats have looked like the same dominant team they were last year and have picked right back up where they left off. Earlier this week, point guard Tyler Ulis injured his elbow and was not able to play in the team’s game on Monday against Illinois State.

That one game is the only Ulis will miss as it was announced that he will return to the team in tonight’s game against UCLA. Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio and Dan Shulman of ESPN both confirmed the news via Twitter.

Tyler Ulis practiced the last two days, looks like he'll go tonight for UK. He was definitely missed in the Illinois St. game.
