Hawes back next Wednesday

Spencer Hawes should be able to resume all normal basketball activities next Wednesday, UW coach Lorenzo Romar said before practice Monday.
“It’s amazing what they can do these days with that,” said Romar, referring to the fact that Hawes had arthroscopic knee surgery on Oct. 11.
Romar said guard Joel Smith should be back “a week and a half after that.”
Other than Joe Wolfinger, who is likely out for the season with a foot stress fracture, Romar said everyone else is practicing full go.
The team conducted one of its mile run tests of conditioning today and Romar said all but two players made it in the necessary time — which is five minutes, 30 seconds for guards and 5:35 for big men. (He didn’t want to tell us who didn’t make it). Artem Wallace again had the fastest time.
Asked an initial impression of the freshmen during the first week of practice, he said “They are doing a good job. Obviously they are behind conceptually. But it is not anything that they are not going to be able to overcome.”
