Travis Wear out with foot injury

Forward Travis Wear isn’t expected to play tomorrow at USC. The Daily Bruin’s Chris Kalra ran into him at Pauley Pavilion today, where the junior — wearing a boot — said he had sprained his right ankle badly. How long Wear might be sidelined is unclear. A UCLA spokesperson said Wear injured his right foot at the beginning of Saturday’s practice and did not return.

Wear is averaging 11.6 points and 5.4 rebounds this season, and had a career-best stretch of seven double-digit scoring games earlier this season. That streak ended when he suffered a concussion in late January, an injury that sidelined him during a 78-60 loss at Arizona State.

His twin brother David started in his stead for the Jan. 26 road game, but struggled to five points on 2-of-12 shooting.
