But, ahead of his game on the weekend, a photo of Weaver circulated on the internet with the Kentucky star showcasing his six fingers.
The photo put to bed some social media rumblings about an optical illusion surrounding his gloves.
Kentucky had a special glove made for Weaver so he felt comfortable.
Weaver also featured in a Game Day feature, which he told people that it was 'Okay to be different' after confirming he had Polydactyly.
But the photo of Weaver has done the rounds over the weekend.

While Kentucky fans learned of his six-fingers earlier in the season, the photo sent the internet wild.
The story behind his Polydactyly and the remarkable photo sparked an outpouring of support and praise for Weaver.
The best reply came from former New York Yankees pitcher Jim Abbott.
Abbott was born without a right hand and quipped: "No fair".

It cannot be easy for this young man to talk about, even though he’s always dealt with the questions, jokes, etc.

Really good JJ Weaver story on GameDay.
Seems like a great kid, which makes not being able to keep him home all the more painful.
