Kingsby has dealt with what LSU head coach Will Wade referred to as a medical issue that has kept him off the court.
“Unfortunately, he’s a good player, but he’s just not able to suit up for us,” Wade said in Thursday’s SEC Coaches Teleconference. “He had some medical setbacks early on that we just weren’t able to overcome.
“He’s going to explore his options and find somewhere he can play.”
The 6-foot-1 guard signed with LSU in Mayas a junior-college transfer from Southern Idaho where he averaged 13.3 points and 3.7 assists per game.
