WSU’s Lawhorn ‘not participating’ with team after rules violation


FROM PULLMAN — Washington State men's basketball coach Ken Bone announced Friday that junior point guard Danny Lawhorn is not participating in team activities after violating a team rule.

No further details were provided about what rule Lawhorn violated, and no timetable has been set for his return.

WSU begins practice today with a weekend retreat in Lewiston, then has its first practice in Pullman on Tuesday.

Lawhorn, a junior-college transfer, figured to compete for the team's starting point guard job. He led the NJCAA in assists during his two seasons at San Jacinto (Texas) College. But this news seems to leave his status in flux.

The Cougars will also be without freshman guard Que Johnson for the first few weeks of practice while he recovers from a stress fracture in his shin. Johnson comes off his crutches on Monday, Bone said, and the coach estimates that Johnson will miss two or three weeks of practice. But he does expect him to be ready to go by the time the season starts.
