Injury update

Quincy Pondexter, Adrian Oliver and Spencer Hawes all practiced today and indications are that all will play Saturday against Washington State.
Pondexter hadn’t practiced since spraining his ankle Saturday at Cal.
“I’m feeling much better,” he said. ” I’ve been doing a lot of therapy and I’m just
ready to get back to playing.”
Asked about practice, he said, “Practice went pretty well. There was a little pain, but I’m doing pretty well. It will be alright by game time Saturday.”
And asked if it is up to you, what is your status for Saturday, he said “Saturday, I’m playing. Whatever I can do to help my team out, I’m doing it.
That’s what I’m looking forward to. If it’s only a little time, it’s alright
with me just as long as I get to help my team.”
Oliver has been suffering from a quad contusion but returned to practice today. Hawes sat out a few days to recover from a flu-virus and says he’s getting close to normal.
UW’s starting lineup for Saturday is still somewhat in flux, however, as Romar said he had to know the exact status of all of the injured/sick players before putting it together. The most likely change is Justin Dentmon moving back into the starting lineup. With Oliver ailing, Dentmon could start alongside Ryan Appleby.
Players and coaches said today that practices have been a little more spirited than normal in the wake of the 1-5 start and last week’s lost weekend in the Bay Area.
“They’ve really competed in practice,” Romar said today. “We’ve been undermanned, but the guys who have been out there have really gotten after it.”
