Sophomore sixth-man Jorge Gutierrez’s sprained right knee will keep him out of this week’s Pac-10 games at Washington State and Washington, coach Mike Montgomery said this morning on the league’s weekly coaches teleconference with media.
“He’s got to get to where he feels like he can go. He’s about 80 percent,” Montgomery said. “He’s a big part of our team. We hope to have him next week.”
Gutierrez missed both games last weekend against the L.A. schools after aggravating his surgically repaired knee the week before against Stanford.
