    KU's Embiid likely out til Sweet Sixteen

    ESPN.com
    Kansas Jayhawks freshman big man Joel Embiid is out for the Big 12 tournament and will likely miss the first weekend of the NCAA tournament.

    The 7-foot Cameroon native went to Los Angeles for a second opinion on his ailing back on Monday. Jayhawks coach Bill Self told ESPN.com earlier in the day he was confident that Embiid would play in the NCAA tourney, and thought there was a chance he could play in the Big 12 tournament.

    However, after Embiid met with a spinal specialist, the initial stress fracture prognosis was confirmed and he was ruled out of the Big 12 tourney and is unlikely to play the first weekend of the NCAA tournament.

    "Based on that, this weekend (in the Big 12 Championship) is out," Self said in a statement. "Next weekend, we feel like is a longshot, but the doctors are hopeful that if Joel works hard in rehab and progresses that it is possible that he could play in the later rounds of the NCAA Tournament if our team is fortunate enough to advance."
    Should be interesting to see how this affects seeding. Big 12 tourney is extra important for KU now

    I was very happy when I heard this because that means it's going to be Wiggins time for the next two weeks.

    He apparently told they KU fans around him on senior night that he wants to be a senior at KU or something too..I don't know if he's serious because he's seems like he's got a big mouth.

    He's got a great personality. He talks a lot about researching NBA greats and how big men benefit from more than 1 year of college.

    Never know.
