Brockman feeling better

Last time the Huskies were in Pullman, Jon Brockman suffered a sprained left ankle that ended up requiring off-season surgery.
As the Huskies prepare for a return, Brockman is again battling some injuries. But in the good news department, he also thinks he is getting as close to 100 percent as he’s been since early last month, when he suffered a sprained right ankle that held him out of the Portland State game. While Brockman has been recovering from that he also cut his thumb opening a package on Christmas night.
Both ailments, he said Wednesday, continue to improve.
“My ankle is feeling a lot better,” he said. “It’s not 100 percent yet but it felt good (against Morgan State). I’m starting to finally feel like I can get a little lift off the ground and plant and trust it.”
“The thumb didn’t bother me at all last night. I only felt it a couple of times when it got whacked. But I didn’t even wear a pad on it last night. I just had a band-aid over it. I think by Saturday I should be pretty close to healed up.”
And in something that didn’t get noted Tuesday night, Brockman passed Brandon Roy to move into 10th on the school’s career scoring list. He now has 1,481 points and is just 19 away from becoming the first player in school history with 1,500 points and 1,000 rebounds.
