LEXINGTON, Ky. — Vanderbilt basketball center Liam Robbins was helped off the court four minutes into the Commodores’ matchup with Kentucky at Rupp Arena on Wednesday night with an apparent lower leg injury.
Robbins grabbed his right ankle underneath Kentucky’s basket after a missed Wildcats jumper. He was helped to the locker room without putting weight on the leg.
This isn’t the first leg ailment for Robbins, who missed four games earlier in the season with an ankle injury and also had a stress fracture in his foot that kept him out much of the 2021-22 season.
Robbins is averaging 15.5 points per game, one of two Commodores averaging double figures, with 7.1 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game.
Vanderbilt (16-13, 9-7 SEC) lost three of the four games in which Robbins did not play this season. The Commodores have a 14-game losing streak to Kentucky (20-9, 11-5).
