Injury bug hits harder

It’s not so much a matter of which Husky team will show up Saturday in Pullman, but which Huskies.
When Washington finished practice Wednesday, the Huskies had just seven players available, with guard Adrian Oliver the latest player to be bitten by the injury bug.
Coach Lorenzo Romar said today that Oliver is battling a bruised thigh. Oliver apparently first suffered the injury in a game last weekend and then reaggravated the injury in practice Wednesday.
Oliver seems likely to play Saturday though Romar held out the possibility that he wouldn’t be able to go.
The Huskies were also without Quincy Pondexter (ankle), Spencer Hawes (flu) and redshirting Tim Morris (calf).
Hawes has sat out a few practices this week in his continuing effort to get past a nasty virus. He said the rest has appeared to do some good as he said he’s able to eat regularly again and feels he’s getting back to normal.
Pondexter sprained his ankle at Cal. He was expected to try to practice this afternoon. Romar said again that he’s “hopeful” that Pondexter will be able to play against the Cougars on Saturday.
To get through practice, assistants Cameron Dollar and Paul Fortier took the floor, giving the Huskies nine bodies.
