Tyshawn Taylor Injury Update: Kansas G Played Through Game Vs. Ohio State With Torn Meniscus

During the Kansas Jayhawks 78-67 upset victory over the No. 2 Ohio St. Buckeyes, while Buckeye fans cried foul for their star player being out for the game (Jared Sullinger) with an injured back, the Jayhawks fans can give a ton of credit to one of their star players playing through a significant injury.

Per the Lawrence Journal-World twitter feed, evidently Jayhawks guard Tyshawn Taylor played through Saturday's game with a torn meniscus:

Missing three weeks of action would mean missing games against Davidson, at USC, Howard and North Dakota. For Bill Self, this could be an opportunity to develop the younger guards and build the confidence on the Jayhawks with their star player down.

Jared Sullinger Reportedly Out For Today's Game Against Kansas Jayhawks For Ohio State

Just as soon as word arrived that Sullinger was going to warm up and “see how he feels,” now we’re receiving word that he’s not even going to dress for today’s game against the Kansas Jayhawks. That’s bad news for an Ohio State team that could certainly use their star players who averaged 19 points and 10 rebounds per game. It also nixes the featured match-up that was much anticipated between Sullinger and KU’s Thomas Robinson, who is another probable lottery talent in next year’s NBA Draft. But Gary Parrish of CBS is reporting that Sullinger is out.

For now, Kansas will still have to contend with a tough Ohio State squad. Bill Self is well aware that the Buckeyes aren’t just a one-man team, although they certainly have an easier time of it without Sullinger. The forward has been questionable all week with back spasms and it seems that nothing is better yet. The only way to get around that is with some rest.

Jared Sullinger Injury: Going To Be Game-Time Decision Ohio State Against Kansas

The official word coming out of Ohio State is that Jared Sullinger is going to be a game-time decision for the Buckeyes, which is at least a glimmer of hope that the much anticipated showdown between Thomas Robinson and Sullinger as two of the nation’s best college basketball players would take place. That said, today’s battle of Kansas against Ohio State should still be a great game.

Sullinger has been questionable this entire week and Thad Matta said he wasn’t sure what would happen. Brandon Castel says an Ohio State assistant coach has given word of some good news. “According to Jeff Boals, Jared Sullinger is going to warm up before the game and see how he feels.” With back spasms, it’s always tough to tell until the moment of an event.

That makes it a possibility if Sullinger feels healthy enough that he will take the floor. That’s good news for OSU considering Sullinger averages 19 points and 10 rebounds per game.
