Golden Nuggets: Theo Returns!

Theo Robertson will come off the bench Wednesday against Pacific.  Monty didn't say who would start at center and mentioned that MSF needs to get his stamina back.

"He practiced today, looked pretty good," Montgomery said. Asked if that means he’s ready to go, Monty added, "I presume so. I’ll see how he is (Tuesday), but he moved around pretty well. Never really begged out. So I’m hoping he can (play)."

Monty said Jorge Gutierrez likely will start against Pacific, but ultimately will probably come off the bench, allowing Robertson to start and giving the team a versatile player who provides energy as a sub.

"We would go back to the way we were, playing him at the 3, then move him to the 4, depending on if we went small," Montgomery said.

Robertson was averaging 18 points through two games when he injured his right foot before Cal’s games against Syarcuse and Ohio State at Madison Square Garden.

"Theo’s maybe our best shooter and he was playing very well before he got hurt. He’s a smart player," Montgomery said. "We could have really used him against those zones in New York, having a third pure shooter. I would think it will be much harder loading up on Patrick (Christopher) and Jerome (Randle). It should change things drastically."

After the jump, Utah fans look forward to playing Ludwig's offense, Ted Miller looks back at what could have been for Cal (and USC), Miller posts his All-Pac-10 team, basketball gets ready to play Pacific, and more.
