Kansas University junior forward Perry Ellis, who was cleared by doctors to practice today, did practice on a limited basis, KU coach Bill Self said.
Ellis suffered a right knee sprain in the first half of the KU-West Virginia game on March 3 and sat out Saturday’s loss at Oklahoma.
“Perry Ellis has been cleared to practice as tolerated,” Self said after today’s practice. “Perry was evaluated today and the doctors feel that he is right on schedule. He did some basketball activity on Monday. He practiced today, but is still on a limited basis.
“We’re going to wait until tomorrow (Wednesday) to see how he feels. If he feels better, then he’ll progress and hopefully practice the entire practice tomorrow. It will still be a gameday decision (Thursday) on whether or not he plays, but he is progressing nicely.”
KU will meet TCU or Kansas State in a Big 12 quarterfinal at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, in KC’s Sprint Center.
