Selby expected to play Saturday

Kansas coach Bill Self said Thursday that KU guard Josh Selby is still not 100-percent comfortable with the stress reaction in his right foot but that Selby is expected to play Saturday against Iowa State.

“We’ll know more today,” Self said. “He’s going to practice tonight or this afternoon. We’ll see if we have to limit him at all. We did a light workout yesterday, and he was doing pretty good. It’s to the point that, with a new orthodic that he has received, we’re going to let him go.”

Self said that Selby was playing well before he missed the last two games with the injury.

“He was certainly doing more with the ball,” Self said. “I thought since the Texas game he had been really aggressive, really driving to force help and doing things that were really positive for us. I thought he was playing the best he’s been since he’s been here the three games prior to sitting out.”
