Wildcat guard suffers knee sprain in practice

 

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- University of Arizona men’s basketball player Chris Rodgers suffered a right knee sprain in practice Wednesday and is expected to miss four to eight weeks while recovering.

 

Rodgers, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound senior guard from Portland, Ore., averaged 5.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 2004-05.  He led the team with a 2.30 assist:turnover ratio and seven times last year played 20 or more minutes without a turnover.  Rodgers is one of three seniors on the Wildcat roster.

 

“Recovery from this type of injury can require a great deal of patience,” said Justin Kokoskie, certified athletic trainer.  “We’ll take it day-by-day to make sure we get him ready to play as quickly and as safely as possible.”

 

Rodgers is one of 11 returning squadmen from last season’s 30-7 club that advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s Chicago Regional final.  Arizona opens the 2005-06 season on Nov. 21 against Kansas at the EA Sports Maui Invitational.
