Arizona junior point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright is expected to miss a “considerable amount of time” with a high ankle sprain suffered in the Wildcats’ 85-63 win over Texas Southern Wednesday.

Jackson-Cartwright was in a collision and collapsed on the court at the 12:27 mark, but walked gingerly to the locker room and never returned to the game.   

“I don’t know what happened,” Miller said. “He turned his ankle. It’s a high ankle sprain and a bad one.”

The x-rays came back negative and the Wildcats are in a pickle, because they have to readjust again  to find a rhythm in the rotation, but Kadeem Allen is optimistic about Jackson-Cartwright. 

“Hopefully he’ll be back next game and ready to play,” guard Kadeem Allen said. 

Jackson-Cartwright averaged nine points and six assists per game, but with a team filled with injuries, Arizona is down to seven scholarship players and not even Miller knows who the eighth man will be. 

Arizona shifts gears and returns to a neutral site game against No. 8 Gonzaga Saturday in Los Angeles at Staples Center at 3:30 p.m.
