Ankle injury has Iowa State's Kane uncertain for Kansas

Iowa State's DeAndre Kane

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State isn't sure if point guard DeAndre Kane will be available for Monday night's game against No. 18 Kansas because of an ankle injury.

Kane sprained his left ankle late in Saturday's 82-75 loss to Oklahoma, the first of the season for the ninth-ranked Cyclones (14-1, 2-1 Big 12).

Kane was carried off the court by teammates, but head coach Fred Hoiberg says his availability for the matchup against the rival Jayhawks (11-4, 2-0) will be a ''game day'' decision.

Kane says his sprained ankle remains sore, adding that he will try to do everything he can to play against the Jayhawks.

Kane, a senior transfer from Marshall, has blossomed into one of the nation's most versatile players. He is averaging 16.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game.
