UCLA basketball: Malcolm Lee to get second MRI exam on knee

March 7, 2011 |  3:21 pm

UCLA junior guard Malcolm Lee was scheduled to undergo a second MRI exam on his left knee Monday afternoon, Coach Ben Howland said, two days after Lee fell hard on the Bruins' final offensive possession of regulation during a 58-54 overtime victory over Washington State.

Lee had a MRI test in Spokane, Wash., Howland said, but was scheduled to have a second one taken in Los Angeles because it was a more advanced machine. Howland would not discuss the results of the first test.

Lee was observed walking without a limp on campus Monday afternoon. He made six crucial free throws in the final six minutes of UCLA's triumph over the Cougars, which clinched second place in the Pacific 10 Conference for the Bruins.

UCLA opens the Pacific Life Pac-10 tournament on Thursday against the winner of Wednesday's game between No. 7-seeded Oregon and No. 10-seeded Arizona State.
