Udoka Azubuike to miss the rest of the season

Kansas center Udoka Azubuike will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his wrist during practice on Friday. 

The junior played in 9 games this season where he averaged 13 points and 6 rebounds. 

Kansas Head Coach Bill Self released the following statement: 

"Udoka had an MRI done this morning and the MRI revealed he tore the same ligament in his right hand that he tore in his left hand his freshman season (Dec. 2016)," said Kansas head coach Bill Self. "This occurred in practice on Friday (Jan. 4) and although the initial x-rays did not reveal the extent of the injury, the MRI did and it will require season-ending surgery. The surgery date will be set early this week. The doctors expect a complete recovery and Udoka will be able to assume full basketball activities at some point this summer."
