March Madness Injury Report - # 1 UCLA NCAA Tournament

The number 1 seed in the West UCLA has a couple players looking to recover from injuries before there first round game against Mississippi Valley State. Freshman Kevin Love who was the PAC10 player of the year strained his lower back early in the PAC10 championship game against Stanford. Love returned o practice and coach Howland reports "He might have been a little sore.", "He seemed to be in good spirits,". Love is not limiting his activities in practice and is expected to start on Thursday.
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute sprained his left ankle in Friday's PAC10 tournament semifinal win against Southern California and did not play in the Stanford game Saturday. Things do not appear to be looking as good for Moute playing as he was off crutches and in a walking boot Sunday. Moute did not practice Tuesday because of an exam but did some light shooting said coach Howland "I assume if he's able to do some light shooting he's not in the walking boot, but I don't know," Howland said. "If he's able to go, we'll play him on Thursday." The Bruins could use his experience on the court as he has played in consecutive NCAA Final Fours.
