ESPN.com: Mizzou's Bowers postpones surgery for tourney

Injured Missouri forward Laurence Bowers will postpone surgery on two torn wrist ligaments until after the Tigers' NCAA tournament appearance. Bowers disclosed the injury's severity as Missouri, a 10th seed in the East region, prepares for a first-round NCAA matchup Friday against seventh-seeded Clemson in Buffalo, N.Y. He originally called the injury a sprained wrist and wore a splint in Missouri's first-round loss to Nebraska in the Big 12 tournament last week. Bowers spent most of the season as a reserve. He has started the past four games in place of injured forward Justin Safford, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and faces offseason surgery.
