Embiid injury a blow to Kansas?
Bad news hit Lawrence, Kan., on Monday, with Kansas Jayhawks freshman big man Joel Embiid being ruled out for the Big 12 tournament and likely the first weekend of the NCAA tournament due to injury. Overshadowed by highly touted classmate Andrew Wiggins before the season, Embiid's profile has exploded this season -- he is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft -- as he won Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year. Will this be a major blow to KU's chances?
