King did not practice Monday or Tuesday as he sat out with a right hand injury he suffered in Saturday's loss at Oregon State, Steve Mims of The Register-Guard
King has been Oregon's top scorer (12.9 points per game) and rebounder (5.7 per game) this year ever since Bol Bol (foot) was lost for the season, so the Ducks are certainly keeping a close eye on the freshman's hand in the hopes that he'll be available Thursday at USC. He played nearly the entire second half after injuring his hand shortly into the period, but it's been sore enough for him to have his fingers taped over the last two practice sessions while receiving treatment. He'll attempt to practice Wednesday, which should help clarify his availability for Thursday's road contest. In the meantime, Ehab Amin is likely to receive more minutes if King is held out, which would also limit the Ducks to only eight healthy players on scholarship.
