Grant Jerrett injury: Elbow MRI shows no break, should be good for Ohio State game

Arizona Wildcats forward Grant Jerrett should be able to play Wednesday as the Wildcats face the Ohio State Buckeyes.

An MRI on Grant Jerrett's elbow showed no breaks or significant damage, the Arizona Wildcats said on Sunday. The UA forward was injured shortly after entering the round of 32 game on Sunday against the Harvard Crimson.

After falling hard on his elbow after losing his balance, Jerrett went to the locker room and returned to the bench where he iced the injury.

Though Jerrett didn't return to the game and his status wasn't known -- EnergySolutions Arena did not have an MRI machine to get a quick look -- he told the media present that he felt like he'd be fine.

That's good news considering the Wildcats will need their deep front line to keep the Buckeyes and forward Deshaun Thomas out of the paint. So far in two resounding victories, the Wildcats have thrived in making opponents think twice about scoring around the cup. Both Harvard and Belmont struggled against UA's size, and though the Buckeyes have the ability to get into the paint, they don't have the depth and size of the Wildcats.
