TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

X-rays to Grant Jerrett's elbow were negative, and he should be able to play in Thursday's Sweet 16 showdown with Ohio State, Arizona trainer Justin Kokoskie reported Sunday.

Jerrett is expected "to regain full strength and sensation" over the next 24 hours and should be ready for NCAA tournament action.

The freshman center told Anthony Gimino of AG's Wildcat Report that he will return to practice Monday after playing only 47 seconds in the Wildcats' 74-51 win over Harvard on Saturday.

Jerrett took a hard fall after he was undercut while going up for a layup, crashing on his right elbow.

The trainer rushed onto the court and took Jerrett to the locker room.

"My arm just started to spasm out," Jerrett said told Gimino.

The 6-foot-10, 235-pounder from Chino Hills, Calif., is averaging 5.3 points and 3.6 rebounds this season. He has hit 31 of 77 three-pointers (40 percent).
