Perry update

Posted by Bob Condotta at 1:28 PM

We'll have more on this later, but here's a quick note to update the status of UW guard Harvey Perry from a news conference coach Lorenzo Romar held today.

Romar said Perry has been diagnosed with a small stress fracture in his lower back that will require him to rest for another two weeks - he has already sat out for two weeks, making a total of a month without doing anything.
He will then begin a rehab program that could take up to eight weeks.

Romar said that during that process it will be decided whether he will play this season. Romar said if Perry comes back and early into the rehab process and it is determined he can play, then Perry could see action this season.

But Romar said nothing is being ruled out, including the possibility that Perry may have to redshirt this season.

"It's very difficult to say what's going to happen at this point,'' Romar said.

Romar said that based on the tests, it is thought that the four weeks of rest and the rehab program should be enough to recover from the injury and that surgery shouldn't be necessary.
