Brockman questionable

That’s the official word today on UW forward Jon Brockman for Washington’s game Wednesday against Cal in the first round of the Pac-10 tournament.
Brockman suffered an injury to his left ankle late in Saturday’s loss at WSU. He was examined further today and the diagnosis remains that it is a sprain. But Brockman declared it “a pretty good sprain” and said he couldn’t put any weight on it after the game Saturday.
Brockman said that he would try to play as long as it was just a sprain and nothing more serious.
Still, it seems unlikely he would be anywhere near 100 percent, which could be a severe blow to the Huskies.
Brockman entered the WSU game scoring 24 percent of UW’s points this season (17.6) and grabbing 33 precent of their individual rebounds (11.6) — Washington also has 106 team rebounds for the season.
Cal also has some injury concerns as senior center DeVon Hardin sat out the UCLA game Saturday with a left hip flexor. Oddly, the Bears have seemed to almost thrive without Hardin, sweeping the Washington schools on the road earlier this year when he was out with an illness and then almost winning at UCLA Saturday.
Brockman pointed out that the Huskies have played well when he took rests the last few games — he played just 23 minutes in the win at Cal.
But it’s not something anyone in purple and gold really wanted to put to a test for a whole game right now.
