Kansas Forward David McCormack Reaggravates Foot Injury, May Rest During Big 12 Tournament

NCAA Basketball: Missouri at Kansas

Kansas star forward David McCormack has been a mystery for Kansas this season and has been forced to play through injury.

On March 31 of last year, McCormack had surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot and has struggled to get back to 100% since the procedure.

“This isn’t an excuse for Dave,” Bill Self said back in January. “But you guys know this, David’s not 100 percent healthy and he’s not going to be 100 percent healthy all year long with his foot.”

Now, in media availability today, Self gave an update on McCormack’s condition, and it sounds like the Jayhawks could be without him for a few games.

While it would be nice to have McCormack available during the conference tournament, it will be vitally important that he is as close to 100% as possible in the “Big Dance.”

McCormack averages nine points and seven rebounds per game for KU and will be an important piece for the Jayhawks in the NCAA tournament next month.
