MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State will likely be without Nino Williams for Saturday’s game against No. 9 Kansas after the starting forward hurt his left knee in a loss to West Virginia.

Williams only played 8 minutes in Tuesday night’s game. He spent a few minutes riding a stationary bike before halftime, and then spent the entire second half on the bench.

Wildcats coach Bruce Weber said Thursday that Williams sustained a “strain or sprain,” and that he underwent three treatments earlier in the day. There was no structural damage, and Weber said his senior forward would not need surgery.

Williams is averaging 11.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. He was coming off a 22-point performance in a loss to Iowa State and a 20-point outing in a win over Oklahoma State.
