LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Kansas junior guard Mario Little will miss two to four weeks after breaking his left hand at practice Tuesday.
Little, a junior college transfer, had returned to practice Dec. 5 after suffering a stress fracture in his lower left leg in mid-October.
Coach Bill Self said Little caught his hand in a teammate's jersey while changing directions.
``It'll be two weeks before he could do anything realistically,'' Self said Tuesday. ``His hand caught and pulled his fingers apart and broke it. As of now we'll splint it and hopefully he'll be back full speed real soon.''
Little averaged 15.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists while at Chipola (Fla.) College and was ranked the No. 1 junior college player in the country before going to Kansas.
