SAN ANTONIO (AP) -Kansas reserve guard Rodrick Stewart fractured his right kneecap Friday during the Jayhawks' open practice at the Alamodome.
Kansas coach Bill Self confirmed the injury, saying Stewart slipped on a ``wet spot'' on the court and will require surgery.
Stewart crumpled to the court after leaping to attempt a dunk near the end of 50-minute workout. As Stewart pounded the court, Self and trainers rushed to his side.
Stewart's leg was wrapped in a brace, and the festive crowd grew quiet as he was taken off the court on a golf cart.
Stewart, a 6-4 senior from Seattle, provides depth off the bench, averaging 2.8 points and 11.6 minutes per game.
