    Wesley Johnson?

    What's the chance that wesley will play against Bradley on wednesday night?

    Re: Wesley Johnson?

    I think I read in another thread that he is day to day, and that it was slightly possible that he could have played Saturday night if we needed him that badly. If true, I think he'll play... for how long, I'm not sure.

    Re: Wesley Johnson?

    In the post game yesterday, Mac said wesley ran in the pool on Saturday and they were going to do some treadmill running today and take it from there.

    Even if he plays on Wed, he won't be near 100%.

    However, I'd love a 75% Wes right now.

    Re: Wesley Johnson?

    Seeing how badly he was limping around on Friday doesn't make me too optimistic about a quick return. I'd rather wait until he is 100% to bring him back in, and injury like his can linger if not allowed to fully heal. I'd much rather have him at full strength for conference play instead of rushing him back for these early season games.

    Re: Wesley Johnson?

    At the game on Friday he had the boot on but at the game on Saturday he was in regular shoes....so he must be getting better. Or at least we hope so...

    Re: Wesley Johnson?

    I've severely sprained an ankle, (several times playing rec-ball) is that it is fine for the rest of the day, then horrible for about a week, then gets better and by the 2nd week or so it is 'almost' normal. The biggest risk (at least for me) is that the ankle is very suseptable to re-injury.

    Of course, everybody reacts a little different to these injuries. I would rather see him get healed than have this be a nagging injury for the rest of the season.

    Agreed, let's not rush him back when it will be more important to have him 100% for the rest of the year vs 75% for a couple of games.

    Re: Wesley Johnson?

    What about Jiri and Rahshon? I know both will play but are either near 100%?

    At the game on Friday night, Jiri had a noticeable limp during dead balls.

    I think the precautionary hold out was last week-he should be fine Wednesday night

    Re: Wesley Johnson?

    Wesley has potential to be a great player in the Big XII, and is a solid off guard and/or small foward. How will we be at point guard?

    I'd rather have a 100% Wesley for the rest of the season than a 75% Wesley on wednesday. Bradley will be a tough test, but they are not worth rushing WJ back for and risking it, just TOO long of a year.

    I agree, sit him out tomorrow night, then he has almost another week to heal up and get ready for the Minnesota game.
