KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas State senior forward Dean Wade is questionable for the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship , which begins Wednesday at the Sprint Center in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.

Wildcats coach Bruce Weber made the announcement Sunday.

Wade told K-State medical staff after Saturday’s 68-53 win against Oklahoma, which clinched a share of the Big 12 regular-season title , that he was experiencing discomfort in his foot.

Wade — who has averaged 12.9 points and a team-high 6.2 rebounds this season, while shooting a team-best 41.8 percent from three-point range — missed six games in late December and early January with a foot injury.

Earlier Sunday, Wade was selected to the All-Big 12 first team for the second straight season, a program first since Jacob Pullen in 2010 and 2011.

No. 18 Kansas State (24-7), which is the conference tourney’s top seed , doesn’t play until Thursday against the winner of TCU (19-12) and Oklahoma State (12-19), who square off at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
