Jacob Pullen downplays reported injury

While working out for the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, former Kansas State guard Jacob Pullen fell to the ground in pain and grabbed his right knee, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

What does that mean? At this point it’s hard to say. The extent of Pullen’s injury is not yet known. It could be serious. It could be a bruise.

But for what it’s worth, Pullen took to his Twitter account this afternoon and indicated he was upbeat heading into Thursday’s NBA Draft.

In two separate tweets, he wrote:

– “Don’t believe the hype everything u read and [sic] ain’t right.”

– “I fall a lot and get back up and keep doing my job so this is nothing new no worries.”

Attempts to reach Pullen for further comment have not been successful. Pullen has worked out for 12 NBA teams since graduating from K-State. He is projected as a possible second round pick, but has said he could see himself going higher.
