KU freshman center Embiid practices on Sunday


Kansas University freshman center Joel Embiid “practiced full speed today,” coach Bill Self was happy to report Sunday.

Embiid, who was slowed by knee and back injuries while playing just 18 ineffective minutes in last Monday’s loss at Kansas State, was held out of Saturday’s win over TCU. He’s slated to play in Tuesday’s 7 p.m., game against Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas.

Embiid has had no structural damage in his knee or back. His physical problems have been more of the severe bumps and bruises variety.

Hopefully this means that Embiid's treatments were effective and the bruising and inflammation are gone. More likely though he'll still be battling through soreness. Soreness however is much different from pain.

He may have practiced full speed, but I bet no one on the scout team touched him... :P
