Adams out for season with broken foot

UCLA freshman guard Jordan Adams is out for the season with a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot. He had scored a game-high 24 points to carry the Bruins to a 66-64 win over Arizona in the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals.

Adams injured the foot trying to defend Solomon Hill’s last shot, and told teammates as he limped off the court that he suspected it was broken. He suffered a similar injury two summers ago.

“It’s horrible,” forward Travis Wear said. “His toughness and his shot, and what he brings to this team, it’s going to be hard to replace. The way, he’s been playing, it sucks.

“He came out and he put us on his back. To hurt your foot on the last play of the game, with what we have coming up, it doesn’t get worse than this.”

    This is terrible news. Jordan Adams has the heart of a champion and I really feel sorry that he will not be able to enjoy the culmination of a noteworthy freshman campaign. I hope he has a speedy recovery and comes back strong next season.

    Adams is a beast. He gave his entire heart and effort for the team. He will be sorely missed, and now it’s the job of the team to pick up the effort and not let his efforts go in vain. Adams will be the machine that leads this team next year. Hopes for a speedy recovery. You are still my favorite Bruin.
