Kansas basketball fans had a scare last week when Marcus Morris was injured while trying to grab a rebound in a scrimmage at Bill Self's basketball camp. He was helped off the court before the diagnosis of a "bruised back" came out. Translation: He's fine.
“It’s better,” Marcus Morris said of his back. “The day it happened, I could barely walk. I think it was the immediate pain that really hurt me. I’m getting better. It was very scary.”
A few minutes after Morris went down, his brother, Markieff and Thomas Robinson, banged heads and blood came running down Robinson's face.
Robinson's injury was slightly more serious -- a broken nose -- and he wasn't supposed to have contact for a week.
Well, it's been one week since the injury occurred and it sounds like he'll be participating in another game today.
“My teammates had a talk. We got it together, what we’re going to do, how we’re going to play, so it’s not going to be as physical,” Robinson said of Wednesday’s second and final camp game in which KU alumni are welcome to play.
Two alumni showed up -- Jeff Hawkins and Brad Witherspoon. The Jayhawks will take the court about 3:30 p.m. today.
