John Calipari announced Sunday on his Facebook page that Darnell Dodson won't play for Kentucky this season.
"Practice is underway as we prepare for our Canada trip, [and] I'm pleased with the energy everyone brought," Calipari said. "I do want to let you all know that junior Darnell Dodson will not be playing for UK this season. If Darnell, who is academically eligible, decides to return, he could practice with the team if he meets our standards."
Calipari offered no further explanation, but his announcement is hardly a surprise. Dodson's future has been in question dating back to last season because of what sources told CBSSports.com were multiple attitude and off-the-court issues. Once source described Dodson simply as a "headache."
Dodson averaged 6.0 points and 2.5 rebounds in 14.5 minutes per game last season.
