TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright will miss about eight weeks with a high-ankle sprain, Wildcats coach Sean Miller said on Monday.
Jackson-Cartwright was injured last Wednesday in No. 20 Arizona's home win over Texas Southern and did not play in the Wildcats' loss to No. 8 Gonzaga in Los Angeles on Saturday.
The loss of Jackson leaves Arizona with its top distributor — 5.3 assists per game — and its roster even thinner.
The Wildcats lost forward Ray Smith to a season-ending knee injury during an exhibition game and Allonzo Trier has yet to play this season due to unspecified reasons.
