ANAHEIM, Calif. -- For the first time in nearly a month, John Wooden will be able to watch the UCLA Bruins from the comfort of his own home. The legendary former basketball coach was released from a local rehabilitation center and returned to his home in Encino, Calif. around noon Friday.
Wooden, who was hospitalized Feb. 29 with a hairline fracture of his left wrist and a fractured left collarbone he sustained in a fall in his condo, will continue to recuperate and watch his Bruins at home according to his daughter, Nan Muehlhausen.
Injury Update: It appears the Bruins have fully recovered from a nearly disastrous 48-hour stretch in the Pac-10 Tournament when Luc Richard Mbah a Moute suffered a sprained ankle and Kevin Love was hampered with back spasms. Love started UCLA's first-round win against Mississippi Valley State, scoring 20 points and grabbing nine rebounds and Mbah a Moute said he expects to start today's game against Texas A&M.
