Bruins’ Collison injures knee in exhibition

first_imgFrom staff reports When Darren Collison went to UCLA’s bench in the second half of an exhibition game, it seemed like a customary move to rest a starter during a blowout. However, Collison injured his left knee Friday against Azusa Pacific and will have an MRI today. Collison had his knee wrapped and was on crutches after the game. Ben Howland said the worst-case scenario is a meniscus tear. That could mean a 4-to-6 week rehabilitation period and possible arthroscopic surgery. Collison never limped off the court. He scored the game’s first points off a steal and a one-handed dunk, so perhaps he came down awkwardly on the court after that play. Collison was meeting with a doctor and his parents after the game. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
