Farmar Practices Wearing Wrist Brace

By the Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA point guard Jordan Farmar returned to practice Tuesday wearing a brace on his injured left wrist.

He was hurt using both hands to break a fall during the Bruins' second-round NCAA Tournament win against Alabama on Saturday. His right thumb has a slight sprain, coach Ben Howland said.

Farmar had two X-rays and an MRI on his wrist Monday, which were negative. But swelling remained in his wrist and thumb.

He plans to wear the brace during Thursday's regional semifinal game against Gonzaga in Oakland, even though it affects his range of motion.

"I'm all right," he said. "By the time we start playing, it'll be fine."

Jordan is a lefty, correct?

Nope, he's right handed. I have to believe a brace would hinder his shot and ballhandling a bit. Let's hope its not serious.
