Lawrence, KS – According to the statement, the KU coach Bill Self said that if Wilson is with the team, he will suit up and play.
The third-seeded Jayhawks will face No. 6 seed USC at 8:40 p.m. at Hinkle Fieldhouse on Monday night.
Wilson, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, March 12, has been isolated in Lawrence ever since, keeping in touch with his coaches and teammates via cell phone and video calls.
Per guidelines, Self said Wilson, and McCormack, will not be subject to testing for the rest of the team’s stay in Indianapolis because they had contracted COVID-19 in the last 90 days.
KU will move forward just one man down. Sophomore guard Tristan Enaruna, who tested positive last week, remains in quarantine in Lawrence and will not be able to rejoin the team until sometime next week if the Jayhawks advance.
