K-State PG commit David Sloan mug

Kansas State basketball coach Bruce Weber gave an update on a couple injured players Wednesday afternoon.

Junior guard Mike McGuirl broke a finger Tuesday after somebody hit it wrong in practice.

“He kept playing a couple plays and just said, ‘Coach, this hurts,’” Weber said. “He’s going to be out four weeks. I hate anything happening but the timing is OK.”

Weber added that McGuirl won’t require surgery because the break was clean with a little displacement.

David Sloan, a junior college All-American who is part of the Wildcats’ 2019 recruiting haul, recently hurt his wrist.

“He’s got the cast off,” Weber said. “He’s got just a splint and he’s starting to do some conditioning and some road work, just running. Our goal is almost the same time as Mike, probably the end of August. It was a very delicate, sensitive surgery. It was that bone that doesn’t heal and we just got to hope that surgeon knew what he was doing and got it done right so he doesn’t have to go back again.”
