University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino said junior point guard Chris Jones will be back in the lineup on Tuesday night. Jones missed the Western Kentucky game with a wrist injury. Cardinal Authority has the latest.

University of Louisville junior guard Chris Jones said he figured he would miss a couple of games with his sprained right wrist.

But on Monday afternoon, U of L coach Rick Pitino said Jones was back at practice and he's expected to play on Tuesday night when the Cardinals meet Missouri State at 9 o'clock.

Jones missed the WKU game after suffering the injury last week in practice.

"He practiced this morning and seemed great," Pitino said. "No ill effects from it."

The 5-foot-11 Jones is second on the team in scoring at 14.9 points a game. He also averages 2.8 rebounds and is second on the team in assists with 23 and tied with Russ Smith for a team-high 18 steals through 10 games.
