Kansas’ Taylor to miss three weeks
Jayhawks’ leading returning scorer averaging 15.9 points
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor has had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and could be out up to three weeks.
Taylor hurt the knee earlier in the week but played through the injury in the 13th-ranked Jayhawks’ 78-67 victory against No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday. The surgery was performed Sunday.
Kansas coach Bill Self said doctors told him the procedure went "as well as expected.”
Taylor is the Jayhawks’ leading returning scorer and is averaging 15.9 points and 4.7 assists. He had nine points and a career-high 13 assists against the Buckeyes.
The time frame the doctors have given means Taylor could be ready to go by the start of Big 12 play on Jan. 4 against Kansas State.
