Coach Lorenzo Romar said Monday that Jon Brockman -- Washington's leading scorer and rebounder -- is doubtful for the Pac-10 tournament-opening game against California. (Here is the story from today's paper.)
Brockman, who is still walking in boot and on crutches, agreed.
"'Doubtful' was a word that was used, and I think that's a pretty good way to put it," Brockman said. "But it's not a shut door by any means. ... (The medical staff) also said if it's tollerable, give it a go. But at the same time, not being able to walk, I don't think it would be verysmart to step on the court and try to contribute when I would just be hurting the team.
"I'll be involved doing whatever I can, whatever the team needs. It's a good team and they know they can do it without me. It's not impossible by any means. I played 23 minutes in the last Cal game and didn't have a major impact and guys stepped up and made big plays."
Never miss a local story.
No one seemed sure if Brockman would be able to play later in the week, if the Huskies advance. However, Romar said he thinks Brockman would be ready to play in the postseason, if either an NIT or CBI invitation comes on Sunday.
