Blevins out 4-6 weeks with broken wrist

J.P. Blevins will be out of action at least a month...

LEXINGTON, Ky. --- Senior point guard J.P. Blevins has broken his right wrist and will be out of action for 4-6 weeks, Kentucky coach Tubby Smith announced Wednesday.

Blevins suffered the injury during a lay-up attempt in the first half against Indiana on Saturday. X-rays performed today at the University of Kentucky Hospital confirmed the fracture.

"This is just a terrible injury for J.P. There's no one on this team that's worked as hard as he did getting ready for the season and now he's been dealt a second significant injury," Smith said. "At this point, we just hope he can recover quickly because we'll need his help for our stretch run."

Blevins had played in seven of the nine games this season with three starts. He averaged 2.7 points and 1.4 assists per game. He missed the first two games of the season  the NABC Classic  with a severely sprained right ankle that he injured during the Athletes in Action exhibition game on Nov. 11.
