Kansas State G Kamau Stokes to undergo knee surgery

Kansas State freshman guard Kamau Stokes will undergo surgery on the knee he injured over the weekend against Mississippi State and is likely out for the season, according to The Wichita Eagle.

“Kamau will have a procedure tomorrow and he will probably be out for a while,” said Wildcats coach Bruce Weber.

Stokes, a three-star freshman from Baltimore, was averaging 9.4 points and 2.7 assists per game this season while shooting 36.5 percent from the field. In his absence, the point will be handled by Barry Brown and Caribe Ervin. Kansas State is 13-9 (2-7 Big 12) on the year and likely out of the NCAA Tournament picture.
