Karl-Anthony Towns Posts Emotional Note About Alex Poythress After ACL Injury

Kentucky is still undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the nation, but the Wildcats suffered a big loss Thursday night, when junior small forward Alex Poythress tore his ACL during practice. Poythress, considered by many to be UK's best pro prospect, will have surgery and miss the rest of the season. While Kentucky certainly has no shortage of young talent, it's still a tough loss for the squad.

Friday morning, Poythress' teammate Karl-Anthony Towns posted a heartfelt note to Instagram. He said that while he cried Thursday night for his brother, he knows God has a plan for him.

Hopefully Poythress makes a full recovery and is back on the court soon. We'll see how Kentucky responds to the adversity.
