Kamau Stokes, a freshman point guard that has averaged 9.4 points and 2.7 boards for Kansas State this season, will likely miss the rest of the season as he is set to undergo surgery on a knee he injured over the weekend.

“Kamau will have a procedure tomorrow and he will probably be out for a while,” head coach Bruce Weber said after last night’s loss to Kansas. Stokes did not play.

He suffered the injury on Saturday when the Wildcats squared off with Mississippi State in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. In his absence, Barry Brown and Carlbe Ervin handled point guard duties against Kansas, and Kansas State committed 23 turnovers as a team in the game.
