Powell injures foot

A few days ago, UCLA sophomore guard Norman Powell posted on Facebook that he’d broken his foot, possibly jeopardizing the beginning of his season.

Luckily for the Bruins, it’s not quite so bad.

A UCLA spokesman said that Powell just suffered a rolled ankle, resulting in a sprain, and he is considered day-to-day.

That’s good news for a team that will rely on his perimeter defense next year.
