Texas sophomore guard Andrew Jones has been diagnosed with leukemia, announced his family through the university.

He had missed numerous games with a wrist injury in early December, but had not come back to full form. He played 20 minutes combined against Kansas and Iowa State, before sitting out Saturday against Baylor. 

After undergoing a number of tests and evaluations over the past week, Andrew has been diagnosed with leukemia. He has begun treatments, and we hope everyone will keep him in your thoughts and prayers. This is obviously a difficult situation for our family, and we hope everyone will respect our privacy at this time.
