SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Kansas reserve guard Rodrick Stewart
fractured his right kneecap Friday during the Jayhawks' open
practice at the Alamodome.
Kansas coach Bill Self confirmed the injury, saying Stewart
slipped on a "wet spot" on the court and will require surgery.
Stewart crumpled to the court after leaping to attempt a dunk
near the end of 50-minute workout. As Stewart pounded the court,
Self and trainers rushed to his side.
Stewart's leg was wrapped in a brace, and the festive crowd grew
quiet as he was taken off the court on a golf cart.
Stewart, a 6-4 senior from Seattle, provides depth off the
bench, averaging 2.8 points and 11.6 minutes per game.
