Still recovering from an appendectomy, UCLA forward Travis Wear could return by the Bruins’ Nov. 18 home game against Sacramento State.
Wear was hospitalized on Oct. 28 when he started feeling pain in his abdomen. UCLA is hurting for frontcourt depth right now, with just David Wear — Travis’ twin brother — and sophomore Tony Parker available as big men. In their season-opening win against Drexel, the pair combined for 20 points and 11 rebounds. Parker played only 20 minutes after picking up three quick fouls.
Freshman forward Wanaah Bail (knee) is also sidelined for approximately another two weeks.
