Kemp, whose father Shawn Kemp was a standout with the Seattle SuperSonics, played sparingly in the Huskies' pre-season and the first five regular-season games. The school announced Tuesday the 6-foot-9, 250-pound junior was diagnosed in September with Grave's disease -- an autoimmune condition whose symptoms can include anxiety, fatigue and irregular heartbeat, Seattlepi.com reported.
University officials said team doctors do not expect the disease to affect Kemp's play after he begins receiving full treatment.
Kemp is averaging 4.0 points and 2.2 rebounds per game, while playing in just over 17 minutes per game this season.
