The Kentucky Wildcats are gearing up for a Sweet 16 contest against the Houston Cougars. Kentucky won its first two contests of the NCAA tournament without its best player: PJ Washington.

The Wildcats cruised past 15-seed Abilene Christian, 79-44 and then took down Wofford 62-56. Washington was spotted in a walking boot ahead of the NCAA Tournament and then sported a hard cast during the first two rounds of the tournament.

The star forward sprained his foot during Kentucky's SEC semifinal loss to Tennessee. Head coach John Calipari initially called the cast "precautionary," but ultimately held Washington out of the first two rounds.

On Tuesday afternoon, Washington posted a video of him walking without a cast.

Check it out.

It didn't take long for the internet to react, including Kentucky head coach John Calipari, who added a simple "uh oh..." to the tweet.

Next up for Kentucky is a contest against the Houston Cougars.

Kentucky and Houston are slated for the late Friday night game. Tip is scheduled for 9:59 p.m. ET on TBS - though the tip time is subject to change if the Auburn-North Carolina game runs long.

We'll have to wait and see if PJ Washington is on the floor for the game.

Stay tuned.
