If Kentucky is to continue the run at an NCAA Tournament bid they will have to do so without the talented big man.
Kentucky announced late Friday that Patterson would miss the rest of the season due to a stress fracture in his ankle. Patterson is Kentucky's second leading scorer (16.4) and top rebounder (7.7) even though he has had to battle on his own against more experienced SEC front lines.
