Creighton center Gregory Echenique expects to play Wednesday against Drake despite a wrist injury that was causing him some discomfort in Monday's practice.
The 6-foot-9 senior injured his left wrist late in Saturday's 67-64 loss to Wichita State. The injury has been diagnosed as a strained tendon on the outside of the wrist, and Echenique said he was told it is similar to ones that baseball players suffer when they check a swing.
