UCLA basketball: Update on James Keefe injury

December 16, 2009 |  1:07 pm

UCLA forward James Keefe is scheduled to have his sore left shoulder X-rayed this afternoon, Coach Ben Howland said.

Keefe was hurt in the first half of Tuesday night's game against New Mexico State, re-injuring a shoulder that required surgery for a torn labrum two years ago. Doctors may check to see if the screws from that procedure are still in place.

"I definitely don't anticipate him playing [against Notre Dame] Saturday in South Bend," Howland said.

Another forward, Nikola Dragovic, came down with the stomach flu and is not expected at practice today, Howland said.
