LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - — Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee Sunday and could be out up to three weeks.
Taylor hurt the knee early last week but played through the injury in the 13th-ranked Jayhawks' 78-67 victory over No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday. After the game, coach Bill Self disclosed the torn meniscus and said Taylor also had a sprained MCL in the same knee.
"I spoke with the doctors and it went as well as expected," Self said Sunday. "He will be up and around tomorrow morning and will be back in the shortest time possible. The time for recovery depends on swelling and how he reacts to rehab."
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.
