LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) – UK forward Cam’Ron Fletcher is returning to the Wildcats’ roster one week after being asked by John Calipari to “step away from the team”.

“I told him he may not play a minute this year. How are you going to deal with that?” Calipari said. “I wanted everyone to hear that, to understand that this is the long haul.”

Fletcher missed the Louisville matchup but had played in the six previous games, however seeing his minutes drastically decline.
