Azubuike rolls anke, 'out indefinitely' for KU

LAWRENCE, Kan. Update: While the timetable for when KU center Udoka Azubuike can return to the court is up in the air, there's a bit of good news from the Jayhawk camp about the big man's injury he suffered in the first half of KU's 72-47 win Tuesday night against Wofford.

Kansas Head Basketball Coach Bill Self now says Azubuike rolled his ankle, amending his statement at halftime that the center suffered a high-ankle sprain.


KU center Udoka Azubuike could be on the shelf for awhile after suffering a high-ankle sprain during Tuesday night's game against Wofford at Alan Fieldhouse.

The Kansas City Star reports from a halftime interview on Jayhawk Nation with KU coach Bill Self that Azubuike will be "out indefinitely."

Azubuike was hurt with a little less than 12 minutes remaining in the first half of Tuesday's game.

“We’re not gonna have Doke. Doke’s hurt pretty good,” Self said during his halftime interview on the Jayhawk Network. “He’s got a high ankle sprain. He’ll be out indefinitely.”

Azubuike, a junior, came into Tuesday's game averaging 15 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.
