UCLA Injury List Shrinks To Three

By Bruin Basketball Report

The Bruin basketball team only had three players out today at practice after as many as six players had been out at one time. 

Senior guard Michael Roll (right ankle), sophomore guard Jerime Anderson (left groin) and freshman forward Brendan Lane (left ankle) all missed practice today. However, all three student-athletes are slated to return to practice on Monday, Nov. 2, 2009, just two days before the Bruins’ first exhibition game in Pauley Pavilion against Concordia (Nov. 4). 

Sophomore center J’mison Morgan (left knee) and sophomore guard Malcolm Lee (concussion) both returned to practice this week. 

Lee returned to full contact practice on Tuesday (Oct. 27) as did senior forward James Keefe (left shoulder). Morgan was limited to non-contact drills today and will be revaluated tomorrow.
