UConn's Mosqueda-Lewis expected to be back in 3-5 weeks

As promised, injured All-American Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had her injured right elbow re-examined.

After viewing the results of the MRI, conducted by Dr. Michael Joyce on Monday, UConn announced that Mosqueda-Lewis is expected to be out 3-5 weeks due to the nerve contusion in her right elbow. UConn doesn't play from Dec. 6-16 due to the break for exams so the timing could be beneficial.

"The standard answer is 4-6 weeks," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said after Tuesday's practice. "It covers pretty much every injury. After the initial evaluation, I was pretty much resigned that it was going to be a month. If it three it is great, if it is five it is what ever it is just as long as Kaleena is making progress, that is pretty much the best we can (hope for) as long as she is making progress every day which she is."

Any chance that KML still has nerve entrapment in her arm? I went from a useless arm in debilitating pain to a useful arm with occassonal severe pain. Simple day surgery to move 3 main nerve branches from damaged areas. Suffered some permanment nerve damage but much better off after surgery and a few weeks recovery. Hope that KML does not have permanent nerve damage.
