Latest on Garcia

The latest official word on UW center Juan Garcia is that he suffered an injury to his left ankle and knee. An MRI will be conducted on Monday at which time a clearer picture of the short-term and long-term prognosis should be available.
I’m not completely sure if that means you can assume there are no broken bones. The information above was what I got today with no further specifics. But the fact that the information didn’t detail a break of any kind could be good news, though obviously it sounds as if we won’t completely know what the situation is until Monday at the earliest.
Here’s a link to the story in today’s paper that has details on what happened to Garcia in Friday’s practice.
As noted in that story, Garcia missed the entire 2004 season with injuries to his left leg and ankle, dislocating the ankle and breaking a fibula. An early read of the information presented above at least seems to indicate he didn’t suffer those injuries again.
