But, in Monday's Big 12 media teleconference, Anderson spoke about the injury junior forward Laurence Bowers suffered in Saturday's 71-58 loss at Texas. Longhorns player Tristan Thompson caught Bowers on the chin with an elbow that knocked Bowers out of the game with 12 minutes left in the first half.
Anderson said he had talked to Bowers on the phone, but had not yet seen him in person since returning to Columbia. He declined an opportunity to predict whether or not Bowers would play against Oklahoma State on Wednesday in Stillwater, Okla.
When asked if Bowers had a concussion, Anderson said:
"I haven’t been given a word officially what it was. It could have been a mild concussion, but hopefully he will be O.K.”
When asked about how Bowers is feeling, Anderson said:
“Bowers is doing OK," he said. "Yesterday, I got a chance to talk to him and see how he feels. His head is a little clearer.”
