Isaiah Thomas tweaks ankle

Washington sophomore guard Isaiah Thomas tweaked his right ankle in the second half of last Sunday’s 86-71 victory against San Francisco.
He missed Monday’s practice and is unsure if he’ll practice today or Wednesday.
“Hopefully I’ll be ready for Thursday,” he said. “I’ve been in treatment all day. Yesterday I was in there for 5-6 hours. Today I just got down with a two-hour little segment.”
Thomas doesn’t expect to be 100 percent for Thursday’s Pac-10 opener against Oregon State, but he said: “I want to be as ready as I possibly can.”
Thomas said two years ago he broke his left ankle.
Here’s some quick notes from coach Lorenzo Romar’s weekly press conference:
— Romar said the recent emergence of USC is proof the Pac-10 is improving.
— He said the Huskies have developed an identity in its 11 non-conference games which is defending and sharing the ball.
Quincy Pondexter has become the leader of the team and filled the void created when Jon Brockman left. Romar said Thomas may garner more attention and compared the Pondexter-Thomas pairing to Nate Robinson and Brandon Roy. Robinson was more flashy, but Roy was just as productive and less flamboyant.
— Romar said Oregon State is dealing with playing with expectations. He cautioned the Beavers are still dangerous. He noted how they struggled in non-conference games last season and opened Pac-10 play with a win over an athletic USC team.
— Romar said he doesn’t regret redshirting C.J. Wilcox, who is arguably UW’s best shooter. He acknowledged UW’s shooting struggles and said Wilcox could help, but he also said Wilcox and the Huskies will benefit more with him sitting out this season.
