Kansas freshman center Joel Embiid will not play in the opening weekend of the NCAA tournament, coach Bill Self confirmed to the Kansas City Star on Wednesday.

While Self previously told ESPN.com that he was confident Embiid would play at some point in the tourney, the 7-foot Cameroon native wasn’t expected to be available for the opening weekend due to an ailing back. Embiid also missed the final two regular-season games and the Big 12 tournament.
