Undergoes finger surgery Coach Bill Self said Thursday that Thompson underwent surgery to repair a broken finger and is out indefinitely, Jesse Newell of The Kansas City Star reports.
Impact Thompson suffered the injury in Tuesday's loss to Oklahoma State, and it appears that the remainder of the freshman's season could be in jeopardy. Thompson has had a quiet first season at Kansas, averaging 5.1 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 17 minutes per contest. It's unclear how Thompson's vacated minutes will be divvied up moving forward, though Dajuan Harris and Tyon Grant-Foster appear to be the leading candidates if Self decides to elevate a member of the backcourt.
