Lane out 5 months after ankle surgery

From UCLA:

Freshman Brendan Lane will undergo surgery on his left ankle next week and is expected to miss approximately five months. The surgery, which will be performed by UCLA team physicians, is to repair damage he sustained from multiple injuries this season.

Lane initially suffered a sprain on Oct. 19, 2009 during the first week of practice that sidelined him for three weeks. During the season, he had two more sprains, the latter on Feb. 23, 2010, that caused him to miss a total of five games.

The 6-foot-9-inch forward out of Rocklin, Calif., (Rocklin HS) averaged 2.4 points and 1.5 rebounds per game while making three starts on the year. He shot 57.4 percent (27-for-47) from the floor.

    Dr. DiFiori will take good care of him. Let’s hope he rehabs quickly and has time to safely bulk up.

    had probably that exact same surgery 2 years ago. Granted I didn’t have the physical training that he will recieve, but it took me about 9 months to get where I can run a decent amount.
