Top-ranked Kansas has been without star big man Udoka Azubuike for the last three games. Azubuike suffered an ankle injury in a win over Wofford on December 4.

KU remains undefeated, but the Jayhawks have a major road test coming on Saturday night when they travel to take on 18th-ranked Arizona State.

Azubuike's status for the game remains undecided.

Today, Kansas head coach Bill Self said he thinks Azubuike will still be "doubtful" for Saturday's game, though he was hoping the junior center would be able to participate in practice today.

Azubuike is averaging 12.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game this season for the 10-0 Jayhawks.

Kansas and Arizona State will tip off at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday night.

ESPN2 will broadcast the action.
