Don't worry, Kansas State basketball fans. Jacob Pullen will be okay. Pullen took X-rays after suffering a hand/wrist injury on Monday night against Texas and briefly left the game but Wildcats head coach Frank Martin has told Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com that the X-rays were negative.
With 5:55 remaining in Monday's game against the Longhorns, Pullen went up for a layup and came down hard on his hand. He went to the ground while Texas continued to play quickly scoring a bucket. The game was stopped as trainers came out to look at Pullen.
After a minute or so, he got up off the court and made his way to the bench. The announcers were discussing the injury and noted quickly that Pullen was re-entering the game.
He was clearly in some pain as he held his right wrist throughout the game. Following the game, he told ESPN's Holly Rowe that he was fine.
According to Martin, he is indeed fine.
This is great news for K-State because losing Pullen for any stretch would have been terrible. He's on a nice hot streak right now scoring 38, 27, 27, 24 and 20 points in K-State's five-game winning streak.
