UW guard Kristi Kingma still bothered by ankle

Kingma.jpgPractice is underway for Washington, but Kristi Kingma is out, restricting herself to shooting drills, due to lingering pain from the high-left ankle sprain she suffered Dec. 30. Kingma returned against Oregon State and averaged 22.0 points on 42.4 percent shooting from the field in the LA trip against USC and UCLA last weekend. Yet, she said she wasn’t close to being healthy.
“During the USC [game] I was just miserable,” Kingma said. “I was barely holding on at UCLA. It’s sore now, but I have to push through because it probably will be for a while.”
Despite the pain, Kingma is expected to play against Arizona on Thursday.
Kingma, a 5 foot 10 shooter, isn’t even the only one in her family suffering injury. Younger brother Brett will miss the remainder of his sophomore season at Jackson High due to a broken left arm.
“He obviously got the worst end of the deal,” Kingma said. “We’re really close and talk. I told him to keep his head up.”
