"It's feeling better," Adams, who sat out Thursday's practice after the knee swelled up following Wednesday night's 63-60 loss at UC Santa Barbara.
UNLV coach Lon Kruger acted as though Adams' sore knee was not a big problem when quizzed by reporters afterward.
"Oh, Wink's fine," Kruger said. "Wink's fine."
So he'll play (Saturday) night?
(Wink) said (Thursday night) he had trouble walking up some stairs and he might not be able to go but there's no question that he's going to start?
Kruger said that freshman guard Kendell Wallace is also making progress toward his 2007 debut. Unlike Adams, Wallace took part in all scrimmage action the final half of practice and nailed several jumpers.
"He showed progress," Kruger said. "(Thursday) was his first real live practice. I thought he showed improvement today."
Will he play Saturday?
Kruger: "Don't know. We'll have to see how he comes out of today."
Kruger said Wallace will see time at both the one and two guard spots when he finally does see game action.
One scary moment in practice on Friday involved 7-footer Beas Hamga who appeared to have his right shoulder pop out while trying to muscle a shot up.
Hamga laid on the floor for five minutes before going back to the training room. The good news is he returned to practice about 10 minutes later.
"He's had difficulties with that in the past," Kruger said. "When he went down it looked like he popped it pretty good."
Will he need surgery eventually?
Kruger: "Don't plan on it. Hopefully it will work out and strengthen it up."
What's up with Wink?
