A bruised sternum has limited Will Spradling to a total of 24 minutes in Kansas State’s past three games.
Will those injuries continue to slow them down at the Big 12 Tournament? K-State basketball coach Bruce Weber is hopeful both players will be be near full strength when they return to the court this week, but he was unable to predict how much action they will see at the Sprint Center.
That depends on how well they respond to practice and treatment leading up to Thursday’s game against Texas or TCU.
Henriquez got off to a good start by practicing on Monday after complaining that his back “went out” in Stillwater.
“Backs are funny things,” Weber said. “They kind of pop in and pop out pretty quickly. These are problems he’s had since he’s been here. This is not new. It’s just bad timing. It’s happened twice this year already, maybe three times during the whole year. Hopefully we get the right treatments here in the next couple days and get him back, so he can give us some minutes this weekend.”
