Arizona Wildcats forward Grant Jerrett is probable to play Thursday against Ohio State after X-rays taken on his right elbow upon his return to Tucson were negative, according to a UA statement this afternoon.

Jerrett injured his elbow and nerve while falling during the first half of Arizona's win Saturday over Harvard in the NCAA tournament. He did not return to the game but had to wait until the team returned to Tucson late Saturday night to have an X-ray taken.

According to a UA statement, trainer Justin Kokoskie "is confident that Grant will regain full strength and sensation over the next 24 hours and should be ready to play Thursday vs. Ohio State."

Jerrett missed only one game this season, on Feb. 6 against Stanford, when he suffered a stress reaction in his foot.
