Rush was released from jail Thursday after posting $500 bond.
He was to have been in court Nov. 28 on charges of speeding and driving with a suspended license Oct. 19. He also faces charges from a December 2006 case for driving on the wrong side of the road and having no proof of insurance.
``It was all my fault,'' said Rush, who practiced with the team. ``I wasn't being responsible. Coach always says take care of our responsibilities. I just got confused on the dates and never showed up for my court date.''
Rush is the leading scorer the past two seasons for No. 3 Kansas. Coach Bill Self said Thursday that Rush would play Saturday when the Jayhawks (8-0) host DePaul. He had nine points and 10 rebounds in a 85-47 win over Eastern Washington on Wednesday night.
The 6-foot-6 guard has averaged 10.3 points in a reserve role as he continues to rebuild his knee. Surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament in June forced him to withdraw from last year's NBA draft.
