Kansas Jayhawks head coach Bill Self announced on Friday night that forward Thomas Robinson had suffered an injury in Monday's victory over the Missouri Tigers. According to Self, Robinson suffered a meniscus tear in that game, underwent surgery on Friday and is expected to miss approximately two weeks of action.
That news was a little surprising because we didn't know about any injury to Robinson. Self told Gary Bedore of the Lawrence Journal-World that he injured it while dunking against Mizzou.
"When he fell (after dunking), his knee buckled. It's been bothering him since the game and we did an MRI on him this morning and found out he had a (slight) meniscus tear in his right knee," Self said. "Surgery was performed (Friday). It went well, but he will be out on either side of two weeks depending on how progress goes. It could be a little shorter, could be a little longer."
We can't confirm but we believe this is the dunk he hurt it on:
Kansas will be OK without Robinson (and Josh Selby) on Saturday but, with a two-week timetable, the question of if, instead of when, he'll return this season does crop into your head.
