Sources: TCU’s RJ Nembhard “doubtful” to play against Baylor today [UPDATE]

Nembhard is listed as questionable or a game time decision in most places, but we’re hearing it’s unlikely he goes today

UPDATE: 1:05 p.m.

TCU star RJ Nembhard has been dealing with a groin issue, and missed the Horned Frogs last game against Iowa State this past Tuesday. Nembhard didn’t practice yesterday in preparation for the big matchup in Fort Worth with the No. 2 Baylor Bears today at 2:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.

In most places Nembhard is being listed as questionable and a game time decision, but we’re hearing it is doubtful that he goes today. It’s a big loss for the Frogs as they attempt to knock off one of America’s best teams at Schollmaier Arena. Nembhard averages 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game and leads the Frogs in usage rate.

TCU’s Francisco Farabello is also unlikely to play as he deals with concussion symptoms.

Right now TCU is listed as a 7.5 point underdog at home, with the total set at 125 at DraftKings Sportsbook. We’ll see if the status of the sophomore guard affects either of those numbers.
