FAYETTEVILLE — Nearly three months removed from surgery, guard Khalen “KK” Robinson is getting close to being healthy again.

The freshman from Little Rock had season-ending surgery on Jan. 10 to repair a bone fracture suffered in the Red-White game and reaggravated against Tennessee, but head coach Eric Musselman told reporters last week that he recently got his boot removed.

However, Robinson must wear the boot for half the day now and is still a few doctors appointments away from his coaching having a specific timeline for his full return to action. With the season over, though, the Razorbacks won’t push things.

“We’re not going to rush him back,” Musselman said. “We want slow, methodical rehab to get him back 100%. There’s no rush right now at this time in the calendar to do anything but have patience.”

Before having surgery, Robinson appeared in each of Arkansas’ first 11 games, averaging 2.6 points, 1.0 assists and 0.9 rebounds in 8.4 minutes.
