Basketball: No good news on Kreklow

Cal coach Mike Montgomery on Tuesday said there is no timetable for the return of sophomore guard Ricky Kreklow, who has played in just two games this season because of a foot injury.

“He’s not making much progress. It’s very discouraging  . . . the kid’s very discouraged,” Montgomery said. “It’s just progressing slowly.”

Kreklow, projected before the season as a likely starter, has missed the past five games since feeling a twinge in his surgically repaired right foot. A week ago, Montgomery said the injury is not structural, but likely a tendon or muscle issue.

Don’t expect the Missouri transfer to return to action Saturday night against No. 16 Creighton.

    ESPN’s first bracketology has 6 Pac 12 teams in with Cal being a 9 seed. I’d go for that!

    Hope for a speedy recovery for Ricky-seems every team I follow has several injuries.

    He has game and woulda helped us beat unlv and kept us closer to wisc.

    Still looking fwd to the Creighton game on Saturday. Go Bears!

    Blake every team has injuries – Even Indiana has had two players out and two temporarily disqualified- the good teams win – the poor ones make excuses.

    It works both ways Creighton will miss its guard Jones for the game with Cal. If we win is it ok for Creighton to say – if we had jones?

    Wasnt UNLV missing a star as well?
