Baylor senior guard Alexis Jones' playing status for Saturday's home game with Texas Tech is in doubt, as head coach Kim Mulkey classified Jones as "day to day" with a bone bruise in her knee.
Jones suffered the injury in the first half of Baylor's 70-67 come-from-behind win over Texas on Monday. Jones played just nine minutes in the game, going 0-for-4.
Complicating matters for Jones is that the redshirt senior has had multiple knee injuries in the past five years, including an ACL tear. She ranks second on the Lady Bears with a 13.9 scoring average while adding 4.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
"I just think it's time and pain tolerance," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. "Each day it will get better. Some people can play with that ... you take pain medication and just gut it out. Keep our fingers crossed that somewhere in March we can get her back."
As the final home regular-season game, Saturday's game will mark Senior Day for Baylor. The Lady Bears are also trying to clinch a share of the Big 12 championship as well as claim the 500th win in Mulkey's career.
