Kentucky reserve sophomore forward Willie Cauley-Stein is doubtful to play in Saturday's National Semifinals game against Wisconsin.

Cauley-Stein injured his left ankle in the Wildcats' Sweet 16 victory against Louisville and did not play in the Elite Eight win over Michigan.

"I doubt he plays," Kentucky coach John Calipari said on a conference call Monday, via CBSSports.com. "He will be on our bench, cheering like crazy."

Cauley-Stein averaged seven points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks this season.

ROSENBERG: Expect great Final Four from Florida, Kentucky, Wisconsin and UConn The team will once again look to reserves Marcus Lee and Alex Poythress against the Badgers. Lee, a freshman forward, had 10 points and eight rebounds in 15 minutes against Michigan. Poythress has averaged 16 minutes and 5.8 points in the first four games of the NCAA tournament.
