Marcus Morris bruises back; Robinson suffers broken nose in camp game

Action was rough and tumble at Kansas University’s camp game on Wednesday in Horejsi Center, resulting in three injuries.

KU junior forward Marcus Morris tumbled to the floor hard, landed on his back, and had to be helped off the court, resulting in a deep back bruise, coach Bill Self indicated. He’s expected to miss several days of pick-up action.

Meanwhile, sophomore Thomas Robinson and junior Markieff Morris ran into each other on the court. Robinson suffered a broken nose and is expected to have no contact workouts for a week. Markieff Morris suffered a cut in his mouth that required three stitches to close.

Freshman Royce Woolridge did not compete. Self said he recently “tweaked” a knee and will be out a couple days.
