Bill Self 'doesn't know' if there's a timetable for Remy Martin's return
Two weeks ago — prior to KU's game against Iowa State — Bill Self said Martin would miss an “extended” period of time due to the right knee injury that has plagued the guard since a Dec. 29 fall against Nevada. Martin missed one game heading into Big 12 play but returned for games against Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, playing 25 and 12 minutes respectively. Martin then missed a week of action and games against Iowa State and West Virginia. He returned to the rotation for games against Oklahoma, Kansas State, Texas Tech and Kentucky, playing an average of 18 minutes per game. In his time on the floor, the guard scored 3.3 points on 27.3 percent shooting from the field with 2.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists.
