UA coach Sean Miller said freshman forward Kevin Parrom would play, at least in limited form, against UCLA Thursday in the first round of the Pac-10 Tournament.

Parrom has been out for the Wildcats’ past four games because of a stress reaction in his left foot, which had a stress fracture in November that cost Parrom 10 games.

“We’re optimistic Kevin will be available for the game, dressed and able to play,” Miller said today at his weekly news conference. “How effective, I’m not sure. … I’m sure we’ll give him an opportunity. It won’t be a big one but maybe he can add some depth to what we already have.”

Miller said Parrom has been running on the UA’s underwater treadmill and attending practices, but may not play more than five minutes.

If Parrom is effective, Miller will have his deepest bench of the season heading into what could be three games in three days. Wing Brendon Lavender and center Alex Jacobson have made bigger contributions lately, while reserve guard MoMo Jones has been on a late-season tear.

At 16-14, the Wildcats probably must win the entire Pac-10 Tournament if they are to reach a 26th straight NCAA tournament.
