LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – No. 8 Kansas should have its normal rotation back for the first time in a couple of weeks when it visits Texas Tech  Tuesday night.

Center Joel Embiid is expected to return from an injury, while forward Brannen Greene should be back after he was held out of Saturday’s 95-65 victory against TCU.

Kansas coach Bill Self said Embiid, who had been sidelined by back and knee issues, practiced at full speed in preparation for the Red Raiders. Self said he hopes the 7 foot freshman will be able to play about 25 minutes in his return.

Greene also missed the Horned Frogs game for what Self called “irresponsible behavior.” It was the second straight game Kansas missed a player for that reason – sophomore forward Jamari Traylor missed an overtime loss to Kansas State February 10.
