Kentucky freshman Trey Lyles out with … meningitis?


Trey Lyles missed the Indiana All-Stars game on Monday night as he battles a case of meningitis.

Lyles told the Indy Star that he’s been dealing with it for about 10 days now and that he had a doctor’s visit this week. He still hasn’t been cleared to play.

“I’m feeling better every day,” Lyles told the paper. Lyles is a 6-foot-10 McDonald’s All-American that is headed to Kentucky next season.

Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes protecting the brain and spinal cord.

The annual Kentucky-Indiana All-Stars game will take place on Friday night in Lexington and Saturday night in Indianapolis.
