LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky point guard Michael Porter has a gash above his eye and must wear a headband to prevent bleeding. Still, he says he'll be back in action Saturday against No. 21 Miami.

Porter was injured during a violent collision with teammate Ramon Harris earlier this week in the Wildcats' victory over Lamar.

Coach Billy Gillispie said Friday Harris remains sidelined indefinitely.

He declined to characterize the injury, but Harris was walking and visiting teammates a day earlier.

Kentucky has a jam-packed weekend. Fewer than 24 hours after hosting the Hurricanes, the Wildcats face Mississippi Valley State on Sunday.
