Embiid will sit out Kansas' final two regular season games due to a back injury, ESPN reports. Kansas plays Texas Tech on Wednesday before the season-finale at West Virginia on Saturday. "I think he could return for the Big 12 tournament," head coach Bill Self said. "But it shouldn't impact the NCAA tournament."
Embiid is averaging 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots per game for the Jayhawks this season and is widely expected to be a top pick in June's NBA Draft, along with teammate Andrew Wiggins.
