Smith, Nelson practice lightly, game-time decisions

UCLA freshman center Joshua Smith and Reeves Nelson are listed as day-to-day and will be game-time decisions for UCLA’s matchup at Arizona on Thursday.

Smith had what school officials called a “head injury” after hitting his head on the floor against Cal in the first half last Thursday, while Nelson suffered a sprained left ankle against Stanford on Saturday.

Both returned to practice in a “limited” capacity, UCLA said in a release, with Smith involved in contact drills and Nelson held from them.

Howland said Smith would come off the bench on Thursday if he can play, with Anthony Stover continuing to start.
