Syracuse has lost four of its last five games and don’t forget, it nearly lost the two games preceding this five-game slump. The Orange needed miracle plays in the waning seconds to win at Pitt (on Tyler Ennis's buzzer beater) and at home vs. NC State. Jim Boeheim's team travels to Tallahassee on Sunday to face a Florida State team that's on  the bubble and in dire need of a victory. Will starting power forward Jerami Grant be able to go against the Seminoles? As of late Friday afternoon, Grant remained 'questionable' due to a back injury. He was unable to play in this week's home loss to Georgia Tech. Grant averages 11.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Kansas will play without freshman center Joel Embiid for a second straight game Saturday at West Virginia. Embiid is resting back and knee injuries in hopes of getting back to 100 percent before next week's Big 12 Tournament. Embiid averages 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots per game. The Jayhawks covered the spread without their shot blocker in Wednesday's blowout win over Texas Tech.

Texas center Jonathan Holmes (13.2 PPG) rested a sore knee during Wednesday's 66-54 non-covering win over TCU. Holmes is expected to return (probable) for Saturday's game at Texas Tech.

Indiana center Noah Vonleh has missed back-to-back games due to a foot injury. Vonleh, who averages 11.6 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, is a question mark Saturday at Michigan.

UNLV junior guard Bryce Dejean-Jones has been suspended for Saturday's regular-season finale at Nevada for conduct detrimental to the team. Jones averages team-highs in points (13.4 PPG) and assists (3.0 APG). The Runnin' Rebels will also be without Roscoe Smith (11.0 PPG, 11.0 RPG) for a second straight game due to a concussion.

Texas A&M might be without two players for Saturday's home game vs. Auburn. Shawn Smith (5.7 PPG, 3.2 RPG) will be 'out' for a third straight game due to a personal matter. Fabyon Harris (6.2 PPG, 2.2 RPG) has also missed back-to-back games and is 'questionable' against the Tigers due to an illness.

After missing 13 consecutive games with a knee injury, Colorado freshman Tre'Shaun Fletcher (3.5 PPG, 1.8 RPG) is close to returning. In fact, Fletcher might be able to play Saturday at California. He is listed as 'questionable.'

Fresno State guard Cezar Guerrero (13.3 PPG, 3.9 APG) is 'questionable' Saturday against San Jose St. due to a knee injury.

Illinois forward Joseph Bertrand has a sore knee but is 'probable' for Saturday's game at Iowa. Bertrand averages 9.0 points and 4.2 rebounds per contests. Reserve guard Jaylon Tate (2.0 PPG, 2.0 APG) is a question mark with a sprained ankle.

TCU's Amric Fields (13.1 PPG, 6.1 RPG) has missed four consecutive games and is most likely out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

Clemson reserve guard Adonis Filer(4.2 PPG) is 'doubtful' for Saturday's home game vs. Pitt due to a hamstring injury.
