Kentucky sophomore big man Willie Cauley-Stein did not play in Sunday's Elite Eight matchup against Michigan after suffering a leg injury in Friday night's win over Louisville.

"He's still in a boot," coach John Calipari said on Saturday. "He's doubtful. ... I'd be stunned if he played."

Cauley-Stein walked into Lucas Oil Stadium on crutches and with a boot on his left foot -- and limped around on the court just prior to the start of the game. He was wearing his uniform over a hoodie.

The Wildcats advanced to the Final Four with a 75-72 win over the Wolverines.

Cauley-Stein was averaging 7.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game this season. He suffered an injury to his left ankle early in the first half of Friday's win and did not return to the game.
