During Tuesday’s Pac-12 men’s basketball teleconference, Washington State coach Ken Bone said there’s a chance DaVonte Lacy, the team’s leading scorer who has missed the past six  games with a rib injury, will return Saturday to play Washington.

The Cougars (8-12, 1-7 Pac-12) have desperately missed their star junior guard from Tacoma’s Curtis High. Lacy is averaging 17.7 points and 4.7 rebounds. He led the team in scoring in eight of the 12 games he’s played this season.

He missed two games due to an appendicitis and returned Jan. 5, but played just 11 minutes before suffering a rib injury. Washington State has struggled to score without Lacy.

The Cougars are last in the Pac-12 in points per game (62.0) and field goal percentage (.413).

Without Lacy, No. 1 Arizona held WSU to 25 points on Jan. 2. The Cougars have scored more than 55 points in just one game this season. They lost 71-44 last Sunday at home to Oregon, which was their fourth straight defeat.

In two games last season, Lacy scored 10 points in both contests against Washington. He missed the final three games of the 2012-13 season with a knee injury, including WSU’s 64-64 loss to the Huskies in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
