Kansas guard has successful knee surgery
Kansas guard Sherron Collins had successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Monday, coach Bill Self said.
The oft-injured Collins missed six games during the 2007-08 season recovering from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot. He played through other troublesome lower-leg injuries during Kansas’ national title season.
“Sherron had some knee problems this year, and we knew it was going to require surgery after the season,” Self said in a statement. “He toughed it out and was a primary reason for our success this year.
“Doctors said the surgery went very well and anticipate no complications. Sherron should be starting rehab soon and doctors expect a full recovery.”
Collins, a sophomore point guard from Chicago, earned the 2008 Big 12 Conference Sixth Man Award by averaging 9.3 points and three assists this season. He scored 11 points in each of the Jayhawks Final Four wins. He could be the Jayhawks’ most experienced player next season if Darrell Arthur and Mario Chalmers follow Brandon Rush and Darrell Arthur into the NBA Draft.
