UCLA basketball: Malcolm Lee tweaks right knee

December 6, 2010 |  3:20 pm

As if UCLA didn't have enough to worry about in the wake of a 66-57 loss to Montana on Sunday at Pauley Pavilion, the Bruins have added injury to insult.

Junior guard Malcolm Lee tweaked his right knee early in the second half against the Grizzlies and had an X-ray taken, UCLA Coach Ben Howland said Monday. Results were not immediately available.

Lee played through the injury and finished with 13 points and six rebounds. Howland said Lee suffered the injury when he hopped and landed awkwardly on his knee. Lee experienced what Howland described as "a little bit" of swelling.

UCLA, which began final exams Monday, will not practice again until Wednesday. The Bruins' next game is at 5 p.m. Saturday against Cal Poly at Pauley Pavilion.

"We have to bounce back and have good practices," Howland said.
