Flu-sday Night Links: Injuries, Illnesses, and Terrence Jones Cuts His List to Five

injury logo 1 copy
I’m sure many of you have read elswhere that more than half of the Husky hoops team has battled the flu over the past week, and therefore the team hasn’t had a full practice yet. So, I won’t belabor the point except to point out that this could be that very rare instance when having a close knit team actually produces a negative repercussion. (Guys get sick, and because they spend so much time together, they pass the flu along.) /

You can read all about it from Percy Allen, along with a report on today’s practice (with more props for C.J. Wilcox’s shooting) here. I still say there’s not a chance this guy redshirts, but we’ll see in a few weeks.

And, we’re not the only Pac-10 team ailing:

ASU guard Ty Abbott will miss the beginning of the season.

Stanford lost freshman forward Andy Brown for the entire season.

And, UCLA has five injured players right now, including their likely starting backcourt: Jerime Anderson (groin injury) and Malcolm Lee (concussion).

And, Terrence Jones cut his list of schools down to five today, erasing Arizona and Kansas. He told me earlier this week that his trip to UW went well, and that (despite the looks of it) he did indeed enjoy the Midnight Madness celebration. The schools remaining in play for TJ are UW, UCLA, Oregon, Oklahoma and Kentucky.

Thanks for coming! (And best of luck to all of the Dawgs and other injured Pac-10 players for speedy recoveries!)
