A few weeks ago, PJ Washington had surgery to repair the pinky he broke back in January. According to John Calipari, he’ll be able to get back to playing in about three or four more weeks.
“PJ’s not playing yet because of his hand,” Cal said on today’s teleconference. “He’ll probably be, my guess is, two and a half more weeks in the cast and another week, ten days, two weeks of rehab and he’ll be ready to go.”
Last week, Washington told reporters that he hurt the finger diving for a loose ball and a tendon tore when a trainer popped it back into place. He played through the pain but admitted it affected his game.
“It started hurting and I’d have to shake it off and keep playing. It was kinda hard at first but I got used to it.”
Great news. Putting a trash bag around a cast to get in the water in the Bahamas would suck.
