"He's suiting up, he's here, and I anticipate him getting in the game," Self said. "I don't know how much he'll play, you know he's gonna be rusty and he's gonna be fatigued."
Wilson, who is KU's third-leading scorer and the team's top rebounder, missed the first round game against the Eastern Washington Eagles in the NCAA tournament.
He's averaged 12.1 points and a team-high 8.2 rebounds during the 2020-21 season.
