Brendan Lane To Undergo Ankle Surgery, Out 5 Months

By Bruin Basketball Report

The UCLA Athletic Department announced today freshman Brendan Lane will undergo surgery on his left ankle next week and is expected to miss approximately five months. 

Lane is anticipated to be ready for action when the Bruins open the 2010-11 season.

The surgery is to repair damage he sustained from multiple ankle injuries this season.  It will be performed by UCLA team physicians.

Lane initially suffered a sprain on during the first week of practice that sidelined him for three weeks. During the season, he had two more sprains, the latter on Feb. 23, 2010, that caused him to miss a total of five games.

The 6'9 freshman averaged 2.4 points and 1.5 rebounds per game while making three starts on the year. He shot 57.4 percent  from the floor.

With the graduation of James Keefe and transfers of Drew Gordon, and more recently, J'mison Morgan, Lane is expected to see much action next season as a sophomore.

Swami predicts: He'll be fine, and a big contributor next year. He can concentrate on building up his upper body and other strength while his ankle recuperates.

Wow... we're getting starting earlier than usual. I would have expected this post 2 weeks before the regular season started.

If Lane wants to ball in the NBA, he better start downing that whey protein or eat more!

It's been 15 years since UCLA won a National Championship. 15 YEARS!!! For the sake of the program, we need to win a Championship NOW! Howland has three more years in my book or he's out!
