Kansas men’s basketball coach Bill Self announced Monday morning that he has suspended junior guard Tyshawn Taylor indefinitely for violating team rules.

“Although we are disappointed in Tyshawn, he will remain a member of our team and practice with our team until he is reinstated for competition,” Self said in a release.

Taylor has started 26 of 27 games for KU this season, averaging 8.8 points per game. The Hoboken, N.J., native ranks third in the Big 12 with 4.7 assists per game.

KU plays host to Oklahoma State at 8 p.m. Monday night.

I guess this means that Selby must be getting pretty close to 100%.

I'm guessing either Josh or Elijia will probably run the point tonight. Tyrel could also and move the other to the 2 slot.

yes, since the most overrated player on the team is now out, lets give his minutes to the second most overrated player on the team...no thanks.

"Suspended indefinitely until he is reinstated," thanks coach for not kicking me off the team! Could this be the reason of the KSU loss?

I can't believe it took this long for coach to pull the plug...Guess he felt strapped until Selby was healthy. I was getting so fustrated watching Taylor in the game that I'd have to change the channel until the next sub. The kid seems like he's got something major distracting him..Really hope he figures it all out for his sake...

A player isn't going to get suspended for playing poorly. That just gets them a seat on the bench.

Maybe that's why he was suspended, because he might be skipping classes.

didn't think about that, quite a possibility. Flunking a class maybe.

I remember the good old days, when the coach would take "care" of his players. Doug, haven't you explained this to Bill?
