UCLA Basketball Injury Update

By Bruin Basketball Report

Darren Collison was diagnosed with a mild sprain in his left knee, an MRI test revealed this afternoon. Collison felt a pop in his knee against Azusa Pacific and complained the knee was sore after the game. He is expected to be out 1 to 3 weeks.

However, UCLA received bad news this afternoon about junior Michael Roll. He ruptured the plantar fascia in his left foot in Saturday's practice after going up for a rebound and landing awkwardly and may be out three to five weeks. Howland said he had recieved an injection in the foot two months ago and has struggled with plantar fascia for the past 18 months.

Josh Shipp had his right hand heavily bandaged at practice today as a result of an injury he sustained against Azusa Pacific on Friday. Shipp is questionable for Monday's exhibition game against Chico St.

So relieved to hear about Darren - it could have been much worse. Feel bad about Roll, thought he played well yesterday.
More Stanback and Drago? Perhaps Mustafa at point too?

Roll is a big loss but this team is truly a TEAM.we don't rely on one guy to score like the past. Love opens up the floor for everyone and his mere presence on offense and defense allows this team to blossom and makes everyone look better. Bruins are gonna finish the job this year!
