Kansas forward Carlton Bragg has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, coach Bill Self announced late Thursday night.
“This violation is not connected to the alleged incident in McCarthy Hall on Dec. 17th,” Self said in a statement.
Bragg, a sophomore, is averaging 6.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 15 minutes per game.
The announcement leaves KU’s bench extremely thin for Saturday’s matchup at No. 4 Kentucky. Self had already been mostly using a seven-man rotation with Bragg, as forwards Mitch Lightfoot and Dwight Coleby have combined for just 19 minutes in the Jayhawks’ eight Big 12 games.
Never miss a local story.
With Bragg unavailable and freshman center Udoka Azubuike injured, KU also is down to eight scholarship players available for Saturday’s contest.
