KU’s Azubuike may re­turn by the start of Big 12 play

The Telegraph (Macon) - - Scoreboard -

Kansas coach Bill Self is hope­ful that in­jured cen­ter Udoka Azubuike will be back on the floor by the time the se­con­dranked Jay­hawks open Big 12 play against Ok­la­homa on Jan. 2.

The 7-footer sus­tained a se­vere high an­kle sprain when he landed awk­wardly on a Wof­ford player early in the Jay- hawks’ 72-47 rout Tues­day night. Azubuike was still not put­ting much weight on the an­kle Thurs­day, Self said, but he could be mov­ing in a walk­ing boot by the week­end.

Azubuike is av­er­ag­ing 12.1 points and 6.1 re­bounds this sea­son.
