From Pullman — Ken Bone talked to the media on Tuesday as part of the Pac-12 men's basketball coaches teleconference. Bone said that he was impressed with Stanford's size and athleticism in the post, that Josh Hawkinson is improving and may be overtaking Jordan Railey, and provided and injury update on DaVonte Lacy, who has been sidelined since tearing some cartilage surrounding his rib at Arizona State on January 5th.
Read on, after the jump.
Bone said that CAT scans yesterday revealed that the damage was worse than initially feared, and that doctors expect Lacy to miss 4-6 weeks, retroactive to the initial injury. That means the Cougars will spend over a month without their leading scorer.
Lacy averages 17.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game for the Cougars. Without him WSU struggled against the Arizona schools — he came back from a separate illness against ASU before injuring his ribs — but seemed to find their stride against Colorado, and beat Utah.
