Tyshawn Taylor has successful surgery on right knee
Kansas senior guard Tyshawn Taylor had surgery on his right knee on Sunday morning and a full recovery is expected, KU coach Bill Self said.
“Tyshawn had surgery this morning and I spoke with the doctors and it went as well as expected,” Self said on Sunday afternoon. “Nothing had changed in the time frame for recovery, which is one to three weeks. He will be up and around tomorrow morning and will be back in the shortest time possible. The time for recovery depends on swelling and how he reacts to rehab.”
Following KU’s 78-67 victory over No. 2 Ohio State Saturday, Self announced that Taylor tore his meniscus in practice prior to the Long Beach State game on Tuesday.
Through nine games this season, Taylor is averaging 15.9 points and 4.7 assists per game. He had nine points and a career-high 13 assists against Ohio State.
KU will face Davidson at 8 p.m. on Dec. 19 at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.
