LOUISVILLE, Ky.: 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. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
