UCLA freshman Anderson has bone contusion
Kyle Anderson, bone, contusion, wrist, MRILOS ANGELES -- UCLA freshman Kyle Anderson has a bone contusion in his right wrist, an MRI exam showed Wednesday, and he will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against James Madison.
Anderson, a 6-foot-9 guard who is averaging 10.0 points and 8.5 rebounds through two games, tripped over a video cameraman and fell to the floor while chasing a ball out of bounds during No. 13 UCLA's 80-79 overtime victory over UC Irvine on Tuesday night. He left the game temporarily and was examined by medical personnel before returning and finishing it.
He had X-rays on Wednesday morning that came back negative. He went through the team's walkthrough Wednesday, but did not handle the ball very much, coach Ben Howland said.
"I don't think there's a lot of swelling," Howland said. "There is pain and point tenderness. He indicated it wasn't as bad today, but maybe that's just him being tough, too."
UCLA (2-0) is already playing without freshman Shabazz Muhammad, who has been declared ineligible by the NCAA pending an appeal. Junior guard Tyler Lamb also sat out Tuesday after experiencing swelling in his surgically-repaired knee. Lamb, who played in the season opener, did not go through the walkthrough Wednesday and also will be a game-time decision, Howland said.
