Turner still unlikely this weekend

UW coach Lorenzo Romar said today that guard Elston Turner is unlikely to play Thursday against Stanford and has only a better chance Saturday against Cal.
“I don’t see him playing Thursday and he’s probably doubtful for Saturday,” Romar said.
Turner is ailing with a high ankle sprain suffered in a game against Morgan State Dec. 30.
I talked briefly with Turner and he said he is hopeful of playing this weekend but said he has yet to practice. He hoped to do some work in practice today to give it a test.
“Right now I’m just trying to get some strength back into my ankle and I’ve been working out trying to strengthen it for hopefully Thursday — thats my goal to try to play Thursday,” he said. “If not, then Saturday.
“Other than that I feel fine. My ankle is getting better and getting better every day.”
Turner was injured when a Morgan State player fell into him from behind in a scramble for a loose ball. He said it’s the first sprained ankle he has ever suffered.
Turner said he had no issues with the play on which he was hurt saying the Morgan State player “was just going for the ball and he tried to reach over me and grab me and just fell.”
