Kansas reserve breaks kneecap

SAN ANTONIO -- Bill Self has confirmed that Kansas reserve guard Rodrick Stewart fractured his kneecap after slipping on a wet spot during the Jayhawks' open practice Friday at the Alamodome.

"Obviously he is out," said coach Bill Self. "He'll have surgery when he gets back to Lawrence. So, not a great start to our day."

Stewart crumpled to the court after leaping to attempt a dunk near the end of 50-minute workout. As Stewart pounded the court, Self and trainers rushed to his side.

Stewart's leg was wrapped in a brace, and the festive crowd grew quiet as he was taken off the court on a golf cart.

Stewart, a 6-4 senior from Seattle, provides depth off the bench, averaging 2.8 points and 11.6 minutes per game.
