Kansas forward Cliff Alexander will remain out of action amid questions about his family’s relationship with an agent, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case.

Yahoo! Sports was first to report late Thursday that Alexander’s family may have received impermissible benefits from an agent. Alexander has missed the Jayhawks’ last two games after the NCAA alerted the school about eligibility concerns.

Bill Self said Thursday that Alexander was unlikely to play in the ninth-ranked Jayhawks’ game against No. 15 Oklahoma on Saturday. The coach declined to comment on specifics of the case.

Kansas has already wrapped up the outright Big 12 championship.
