KU Basketball Expected To Have Josh Selby Against Colorado

The Kansas Jayhawks are expected to have Josh Selby on Saturday against the Colorado Buffaloes. Selby suffered a stress reaction in his foot two weeks ago that caused him to miss three games. He returned in limited action against Kansas State on Monday night.

On Saturday against Colorado, KU basketball should have their freshman in the lineup at Allen Fieldhouse, according to head coach Bill Self.

"He practiced yesterday. He's probably 80 percent. There's nothing that's going to keep him from playing, I don't think, unless he were to reinjure it or something. He's fine. It's February, everybody is nicked up right now."

As Self has said, Selby's one of the few guys that can face a defense and create his own shot. Others can but not at the level Selby can so I'm curious how he'll be used down the stretch.

Self is a master at fitting the pieces of the puzzle together as far as talent and keeping everyone happy, but I'm hoping Selby has an important role down the stretch. He can be a major asset if used right.

As for another injured player, Thomas Robinson, Self says he thinks he'll be practicing soon. The original diagnosis was a two-week injury.
