Josh Selby's Injury Now Expected To Keep Him Out For Kansas Vs. Iowa State

Maybe Josh Selby won't play after all. Selby, the Kansas Jayhawks' freshman guard, suffered a stress reaction and has been out of the lineup for two games. Head coach Bill Self said on Thursday that he was expecting Selby to play on Saturday against the Iowa State Cyclones.

Maybe not. Self reversed course on Friday evening in a statement issued by the school (H/T Brady McCollough of KC Star) and said Selby is actually doubtful to play.

"Josh did practice today, limited," Self said. "I seriously doubt he will play tomorrow."    

Self said on Thursday that "we're going to let him go" when talking about Selby. Apparently Selby's injury hasn't progressed the way Self thought it would.

Kansas will be missing Selby and Thomas Robinson, who underwent surgery on Friday, against Iowa State on Friday. Does that matter to Kansas? If the oddsmakers have anything to say, no it doesn't. KU was already a whopping 20-point favorite over Iowa State so they're still expected to take care of business.
