Washington's Simmons out 6-8 weeks with knee injury
Huskies role player Desmond Simmons will have knee surgery.
The 6-foot-7 junior averaged 4.9 points and 6.5 rebounds last season for the Huskies.
Without Simmons in the lineup, look for Washington to start either Jernard Jarreau or Shawn Kemp Jr. at power forward. Jarreau had 17 points, nine rebounds, and five assists during the Huskies' exhibition game on Wednesday night.
Washington, which finished 18-16 and reached the NIT last season, opens 2013-14 on Sunday at home against Seattle.
