LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky forward Ramon Harris has
returned to practice after missing more than two weeks with a sore
neck and back sustained in a collision with a teammate.
Harris and guard Michael Porter were near a scramble for a loose
ball during the first half against Lamar on Dec. 3 when they ran
into each other. Harris lay motionless for several minutes and
spent a night in the hospital. He wore a neck brace for more than a
week as a precaution.
Harris was medically cleared to practice Thursday, though coach
Billy Gillispie said he's not sure whether Harris will play
Saturday against Appalachian State at Freedom Hall.
The junior received a warm welcome from fans at the arena on
Friday evening during the team's open practice. Harris is averaging
8.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in seven games this season.
