Travis Wear could be out a month due to appendicitis

Travis Wear, one of three returning starters for the UCLA basketball team, is expected to be sidelined for two and a half to four weeks after having surgery to remove his appendix Monday, according to a UCLA spokesperson.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound Wear, the Bruins’ third-leading scorer last season, averaged 10.9 points and 5.2 rebounds in 32 games, starting all but one. His twin brother, David Wear, had 12 points and 13 rebounds in 29 minutes of a 96-66 preseason win over Cal State San Bernardino on Wednesday.
