CBSSports.com Preseason National Player of the Year Jared Sullinger will miss Saturday's game against Kansas with apparent back spasms, according to a Tweet from former Buckeye Mark Titus.
"Was just told Jared isn't dressing today," Titus Tweeted Saturday afternoon.
CBSSports.com's Jeff Goodman has confirmed the news.
This development means some of the luster is gone from Saturday's tilt between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 13 Kansas because the much-anticipated matchup between Sullinger and KU star Thomas Robinson will not happen. Tip-off is at 3:15 ET. This will be the second straight game that Sullinger has missed.
