Washington F Jernard Jarreau (knee) could miss 4-6 weeks

Friday January 16th, 2015

Washington forward Jernard Jarreau will miss Thursday night's game against Oregon State and could be sidelined up to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday, according to a report from The News Tribune in Tacoma.

Jarreau reportedly left the Huskies' Jan. 10 loss to Washington State with a limp and was limited during practice on Monday. The 6-foot-10 junior reportedly suffered the injury on the same knee (right) in which he tore his ACL in the first game of last season.

Over 15 games this season, Jarreau has averaged 5.1 points on 44.1 percent shooting and 4.9 rebounds per game. With Jarreau out, junior center Robert Upshaw made his first start of the season.

Washington, picked to finish sixth in the Pac-12 in a preseason media poll, has dropped its first three conference games to fall to 11-4.
