No. 4 Kentucky is expecting to without power forward Reid Travis for at least a few games because of a sprained right knee.
That means more playing time for sophomore Nick Richards and freshman EJ Montgomery, starting Saturday afternoon when the Wildcats take on Auburn in an SEC game in Lexington, Ky.
Montgomery is averaging 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game. Richards is averaging 3.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 10.7 minutes.
