  • Thomas Robinson out 2 weeks -- Surgery for torn meniscus

    UGH........

    Kansas men's basketball coach Bill Self announced that sophomore forward Thomas Robinson underwent successful surgery Friday on a meniscus tear in his right knee and will be out for approximately two weeks.

    “Thomas injured his knee against Missouri on Monday (Feb. 7),” Self said. “It’s been bothering him since the game and we did an MRI on him this morning and found out he had a meniscus tear in his right knee. Surgery was performed today. It went well but he will be out on either side of two weeks depending on how progress goes.”

    A 6-9, 237-pound, Washington, D.C., native, Robinson averages 8.9 points per game in 2010-11 and his 6.4 rebounds are 15th in the Big 12. He is 20-for-25 (80.0 percent) from the field in his last four games with a 12.8 points per game average in that span. Robinson missed the Colorado contest on Jan. 25 tending to the funeral of his mother, Lisa, in Washington, D.C. He has two double-doubles in 2010-11.

    “Thomas has a great attitude,” Self said. “He’s very disappointed, but has strong throughout this. We’re disappointed for him for a lot of reasons. One is he is playing so well as of late. We would rather have him healthy and in rhythm going into the postseason than waiting and doing the surgery later on.”

    Self also addressed the status of freshman guard Josh Selby who has been nursing a stress reaction in his right ankle and has missed the last two Kansas contests. “Josh did practice today, limited,” Self said. “I seriously doubt he will play tomorrow.”

      Wow

      I think that we have played a total of 2 games this year with everybody there. Releford was less than 100% and didn't play in one and 2 minutes in the next one.

        The press release says MCL, but describes much less serious meniscus tear.

        I personally think the press release is incorrect and it is a meniscus tear which likely will only sideline him for 2 weeks possibly less.

            I edited the original story === KU fucked up the initial press release which is a pretty big fuck up === Torn Meniscus versus torn MCL is a HUGE difference.

            NFL lineman get meniscus surgery on Wednesday and play on Sunday.

              Hate to hear this.

              Kid's gonna be a straight up beast before he leaves KU. I really like his game.

              Here's to a quick, speedy recovery.

                Not to worry. Thomas will provide more than adequate inspiration for the guys during his absence. And once he's back, look out.

                  So worst case scenario he misses:

                  ISU at Home
                  @ KSU
                  CU at Home
                  OSU at Home

                    That could very well be @KSU without T-Rob and Selby.

                          How many teams can lose a player the caliber of Robinson and plug in a highly rated player like Withey that otherwise rarely gets any meaningful minutes?

                            Did anybody else here before the mizzou game that they didn't want to risk Selby against Mizzou and in a couple of days (ie the next game) he would be ready??????
