Perry Ellis cleared by doctors, should be fine for Tuesday’s game against Baylor, Bill Self says


Kansas University senior forward Perry Ellis, who suffered a cut in his head that required 12 stitches to close and had his eye scratched by teammate Wayne Selden Jr. late in Saturday’s victory at Kansas State, has been cleared to practice Monday and should be “good to go” for Tuesday’s game against Baylor, coach Bill Self told the Journal-World on Sunday night.

Self said the 6-foot-8 Ellis would not need to wear goggles. He did not practice in the Jayhawks’ short workout Sunday, but is expected to go Monday.

“His head is fine. The eye is sore but getting better,” Self said, noting Ellis was checked out by doctors Saturday night and again Sunday.

“Reports from the ophthalmologist was positive. It is a scratch and it should heal up in a couple of days. We gave him today off and he should be able to practice tomorrow. With his head, he is fine. He just has some stitches on top of it,” Self stated.

Yay for Perry Ellis, and yay for KU having great doctors!

Good news and yes, we need him, but it's even more important that his eye is going to be ok.

It would be nice if the others guys stepped up enough that we didn't need to rely on Perry as much on Tuesday, though BU in Waco will be tough. It could be a game for Bragg to feed on the opening in zone at the FT line.

and it would be nice if the guards were finally able to hit some 3s with consistency.

4 guys shooting 43% or better from three. If you're sitting around waiting on that to get a whole lot better I hope you have a comfortable chair.

Bragg needs to put on his big-boy britches and rebound.

Can't say Perry didn't play his heart out in that game! Whew....Boston Jayhawks are rooting for him.
