UCLA Basketball: Injuries pile up

October 19, 2009 | 10:03 pm

Malcolm The Bruins get a break from practice on Tuesday and they'll need it, with five scholarship players sidelined by ailments minor and otherwise.

Sophomore guard Malcolm Lee joined the list of the walking wounded when he sustained a mild concussion on Sunday. Listed as day-to-day, he will see a doctor on Tuesday.

Among the incoming freshmen, Brendan Lane sprained his left ankle and Mike Moser suffered a lower back strain in practice today. Both will see the doctor on Tuesday as well.

Forward James Keefe (shoulder) and guard Jerime Anderson (groin) have yet to take the court. Keefe should be out for a month or so. Anderson, originally expected back this week, will follow up with the doctor and has postponed his return until next week at the earliest.
