Here we go again ...

When will this end? It looks Jordan's status is iffy for Thursday night's game:

UCLA sophomore point guard Jordan Farmar has his left ankle immobilized in a walking boot, and he is questionable for the 13th-ranked Bruins' game Thursday at Washington State.

Farmar hurt the ankle early in the second half of Saturday's win against Arizona. X-rays and an MRI were negative. The injury was classified as a sprain, which means damage to the ligaments, and Farmar said the ankle was discolored.

UCLA coach Ben Howland and Farmar said the guard's availability against the Cougars would be a game-time decision.

"I'm hoping he'll be able to go," Howland said Tuesday. "Knowing him and his competitive nature, it would take a lot ... and right now he's playing so well."

Earlier this season Farmar missed two games with a right ankle sprain and was hobbled for more than a month. He said the right ankle doesn't hurt, but "it's not as strong as it should be."

Farmar, a Pacific-10 Conference player the year candidate, admitted the prudent move may be to rest his left ankle against Washington State, but that may not happen.
For more update on all of our injuries read the update from BBR. I want us to win Thursday night. But I sure hope Jordan doesn't force it too much Thursday night. We are going to need him for the long haul. So lets hope the coaches and the kid the makes the best decision for him. I just cannot recall any other team in any sport battling through so many injuries yet thriving through the adversities. It's a testament to the character and determination of the entire program lead by a coach who right now is the clear cut front runner for the Pac 10 COY. GO BRUINS.
