UCLA's Nelson to miss two more games

UCLA freshman forward Reeves Nelson will miss the Bruins next two games against Oregon State on Thursday and Oregon. Nelson had laser surgery Monday on a slight retina tear in his left eye, suffered in UCLA's win over Washington State last week.

Nelson will be re-evaluated early next week to determine whether he can play in the regular-season ending trip to Arizona and Arizona State.

With Nelson out and teammate Brendan Lane trying to recover from a sprained ankle, UCLA's depleted frontcourt is down to just J'Mison Morgam, Nikola Dragovic and Tyler Honeycutt.
