Thompson still awaiting diagnosis

Hiram Thompson’s status with the Hawaii basketball team for the remainder of this season remains in question due to an elbow injury.

That’s actually not a bad situation, when considering the gloom of the initial diagnosis two days earlier.

Thompson suffered the injury in the second half of Hawaii’s victory over Nevada on Monday night. At the time, it was feared that his arm was broken, which would have been a season-ending injury.

It still could be a serious injury — he is still awaiting the final diagnosis from doctors — but Thompson is remaining positive. He showed up for the team’s practice on Wednesday – although he sat on the sidelines with his left arm in a sling.

“Still not for sure yet, so we’ll see,” the senior point guard said.

Thompson, who is averaging 8.7 points and 2.6 assists per game, said he expects to travel with the team for the non-conference road game at UC Davis this week, although he said he probably won’t be cleared to play.

However, he is still hoping to return to the court before his senior season with the Warriors comes to an end. Hawaii has five regular-season games remaining, and then the Western Athletic Conference Tournament.

In Thompson’s absence, junior Miah Ostrowski is expected to step into the starting lineup, with freshman Bobby Miles providing backup.


  1. ummm. the other guy reported that joston thomas was not at practice today?????

  2. man, i hope josten isn’t have any problems, we need him. he’s part of the answer plus he has 2 more years. I feel for Hiram, but at least he got to play several years as a starting point guard in college. one of the last riley wallace recruits.
