UCLA’s Anderson Injures Wrist

UCLA freshman guard Kyle Anderson injured his right wrist in Tuesday night’s game and is expected to undergo X-rays and/or an MRI today, his father told SNY.tv.

“Kyle injured his right wrist last night while diving out of bounds in the first half [in No. 13 UCLA’s 80-79 OT win over UC-Irvine],” Kyle Anderson Sr. said. “He came back in the first half after leaving in obvious pain.

“He will have X-rays and/or an MRI today.”

Anderson finished with 10 points, 7 rebound and 0 assists.

As first reported by SNY.tv, Anderson underwent left thumb surgery last spring, but was able to join the team for its trip to China in August.

He was recently cleared by the NCAA for alleged recruiting improprieties, but his teammate, Shabazz Muhammad, remains uncleared by the NCAA.

Muhammad’s family on Tuesday issued a pointed statement aimed at the NCAA.

UCLA will play in Brooklyn at the Legends Classic Nov. 19-20, along with No. 1 Indiana, Georgetown and Georgia.
