UCLA's Travis Wear diagnosed with appendicitis

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

UCLA senior Travis Wear has been diagnosed with appendicitis, the school announced late Monday night.

Wear was being treated at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and his timetable for a return is undetermined.

The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 10.9 points and 5.2 rebounds last season, pairing with his brother David in the Bruins' frontcourt. With Wear on the mend, sophomore Tony Parker might see an increase in minutes.

UCLA opens its season Nov. 8 against Drexel.
