Chris Jones' wrist feeling "much better"

University of Louisville junior point guard Chris Jones missed Saturday's game against Western Kentucky with a sprained wrist. Jones, expected to miss at least one more game, updates Cardinal Authority on his injury.

University of Louisville starting point guard Chris Jones didn't play on Saturday against Western Kentucky University and is expected to return to the lineup at least until next Saturday.

But the former junior college Player of the Year said after the WKU game that at least his sprained wrist "feels much better."

"It was so swollen," said Jones, noting he originally thought the wrist could be broken. "That's why I thought it was. But now I can move it and it's feeling better."

Wearing a brace on the hand, Jones said he could flex the hand now and on Saturday could make a fist after not being able to move it much since he re-injured it on Wednesday.

Jones said the initial injury happened before last week's game against Lafayette.

Jones is second on the team in points and assists and tied for first in steals. He said he expects to play next Saturday when the Cardinals play at Florida International.
