Brannen Greene OK after getting hit in abdomen at practice

Player undergoes tests at hospital; coach 'anticipates he'll play' in opener Friday night


Kansas University freshman guard Brannen Greene, who was taken to the emergency room at Lawrence Memorial Hospital after getting hit in the lower abdomen at practice on Thursday, was released from the hospital after undergoing tests, coach Bill Self said Thursday night.

Self said Greene checked out fine with no apparent injury.

“He got hit and had some pain. They ran tests and nothing came back. There’s nothing there,” Self said, referring to injury. “He was released and we anticipate he’ll play tomorrow (against Louisiana at Monroe).”

Self said the only way Greene wouldn’t play is if he’s still feeling discomfort before the game Friday.

... and in another breaking news, I stubbed my toe.

And, I certainly trust you will be a 'GO' for Friday night.

Getting hit that hard in the lower abdominal can be awfully painful. Glad you're alright Greene.

I thought that was Mason who seemed to have ab pain after scoring with astonishing speed.

What's the deal about this "eye witness" reporting Greene going around slamming doors and looking angry?

Cameron Cederlind 8 years, 6 months ago

Probably just angry at Keegan for stalking players at night.

Actually have heard Greene may have a fiery personality...if he can channel that into constructive work ethic and hard-nosed play, its a good thing. We shall see.

If you look at the PT from Friday night, we can see what Self thinks about temper tantrums.
