Hand Injury Keeps Highly Touted Jayhawks Freshman Josh Selby Out For A Few Weeks

Josh Selby's career as a Kansas Jayhawk isn't getting off to an ideal start as he's still recovering from a finger injury. The good news, though, is that the injury happened in the summer when contact between players and coaches is limited anyway.

“Josh’s hand is progressing fine. He still has a splint. It’s been three weeks now,” Self said of Selby first wearing the splint after breaking the pinkie in a pick-up game June 7. “It’s another week and a half probably in the splint. After that if everything looks good, and we think it will, he’ll be able to do noncontact stuff. He’s three to four weeks away from being full speed, full contact.”

Three to four weeks would put him back at the end of July, in plenty of time for the season.

Self also said he's excited about the possibilities of having Selby, Marcus Morris and Tyshawn Taylor as three of the better players in the conference.
