On October 23, 2021, the Wisconsin Herd selected Keaton in the second round of the 2021 NBA G League draft.

Eventually, the Wisconsin Herd traded him to the Agua Caliente Clippers on the same day.

On February 21, 2023, he agreed to a two-way deal with the Los Angeles and Ontario Clippers.

However, the Clippers released the player on March 1, and they again resigned him three days later, on March 4, 2023.

Before playing professionally, he played basketball for Richardson High School and collegiate basketball at UTSA.

During his college years, he was named to the second-team All-Conference USA three times and the 2018 Conference USA All-Freshman Team.

Cason Wallace’s Injury

On March 1, 2023, Kentucky lost against the Commodores, the game where Wallace suffered from a lower left leg injury.

Due to his injury during the game, the guard had to leave the game in the second half of the game, and the player later didn’t return for the contest.

Additionally, when the injury happened, the Cats were in offensive possession with about 18:20 left in the second half.

Moreover, he made an effort to stand up and put weight on the left side of his body after the injury but sat down right away.

“Cason, they X-rayed. He’s fine. It’s not swelled,”. “I’m hoping he will be OK for Saturday (at Arkansas), but I don’t know.” Wildcats head coach John Calipari stated.

Wallace also missed the victory at Ole Miss due to an injury. However, Cason’s injury was not the only highlight of that night. 

In the first half of the game, Liam Robbins, a member of Vanderbilt, also sustained an injury to his left leg. Like the point guard, he also didn’t return later in the game.
