UCLA junior point guard Lazeric Jones said he did not need off-season surgery for either his ailing left wrist or right middle finger, despite struggling greatly toward the end of the season.
Before suffering the sprained left wrist, which required a bulky cast, Jones had made 80-of-194 shots, 41.2 percent.
After the injury, he made just 22-of-70 shots, for 31 percent, including just 2-for-10 in two NCAA Tournament games.
“No surgery; I just have to do rehab and get it back right,” Jones said. “I need to get it back to normal. I’ve been playing a little awkward lately. Now it’s time to get in the gym and get myself together. I have to come back better next year.”
