Hawes “best-case scenario”

Spencer Hawes met the media here a little while ago and said he was told by doctors that his surgery Wednesday was the “best-case scenario.”
He talked to us with his knee in ice but otherwise was walking normally. He said he should be able to run in about two weeks and take it from there.
As far as other injury updates:
UW coach Lorenzo Romar said Hans Gasser is pretty much back to full health and should be fine.
Joel Smith will get his boot off in another week and then may be able to start practicing two weeks or so after that, so sounds as if he’s still iffy for the first game of the year.
Romar said Brandon Burmeister will have an MRI on his foot tomorrow to determine the problem there. Burmeister is still in a boot.
There is no real change on the status of Joe Wolfinger. Romar said for now, it’s best to assume he is out for the year.
Also, Quincy Pondexter has been battling some knee tendinitis and sat out a few days last week with a back injury that he said was due to overcompensating with the knee. But he said he’s close to 100 percent now and doesn’t anticipate it being a major problem.
Pondexter said he has put on about 20 pounds since arriving on campus in June, now up to about 212.
He’s not alone in that department. Phil Nelson said he has put on about 15 pounds since leaving high school and is now at about 212; Justin Dentmon said he’s added 10 pounds and is now at 195; and Jon Brockman said that while he weighs about the same, he has less body fat and feels a lot stronger.
Also, Harvey Perry attended the media session and said his back feels as good as new.
“It feels like nothing ever happened,” he said.
