Azubuike sat out Saturdays 77-60 loss to Iowa State as a precautionary measure after he suffered the injury in Fridays practice.
Udoka had an MRI done this morning and the MRI revealed he tore the same ligament in his right hand that he tore in his left hand his freshman season, Self said. This occurred in practice on Friday and although the initial X-rays did not reveal the extent of the injury, the MRI did and it will require season-ending surgery.
