Vick to take leave of absence from Jayhawks; mom says he’s needed in Memphis

Kansas senior guard Lagerald Vick will be taking a leave of absence from the team, effective immediately, KU basketball coach Bill Self announced on Thursday night.

“Lagerald has some personal matters that require his immediate attention and he will be taking a leave of absence from our team, Self said in a release. “During this time, we will respect Lagerald’s privacy. There is no timetable for his return.”

Vick’s mom, La La Vick, told The Star on Thursday night that Vick will be returning to his home in Memphis, Tenn., to help out with family issues.

“We need him here for a couple weeks,” La La Vick told The Star.
