Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor will miss an estimated one to three weeks and is scheduled for surgery Sunday after tearing his meniscus in his right knee.

KU coach Bill Self said the guard injured himself in practice on Tuesday. Taylor chose to play through the pain and hold off his surgery until after Saturday's game.

"I wasn't missing this game," Taylor said. "When I come back, I'll be 100 percent. It's not even been real sore. T-Rob had the same injury. Conner (Teahan) did. They recovered quickly. I could be back the next game."

Self also did not rule out Taylor returning for KU's game Dec. 19 against Davidson, indicating some players come back faster than others with this injury.

"We have eight days. We'll have to wait and see," Self said.
