UCLA Bruins forward David Wear sprained his right ankle during practice on Sunday. He is scheduled to have an X-ray today, the results of which haven't been announced, Edward Luis of Bruins Sport Report tweeted.

The 6'10" junior averaged 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds over 28.4 minutes per game for the Bruins last year. He started 30 of 32 games last season.

Wear came to the Bruins in 2009 and averaged 2.9 points over 10.4 minutes his freshman year. He redshirted his sophomore year.

The Bruins have a lot of hype entering the 2012-2013 season, largely bolstered by the stellar recruiting class highlighted by Shabazz Muhammad. UCLA is No. 13 in the preseason USA Today Coaches Poll and many pundits expect a return to the NCAA Tournament for the Bruins this year. UCLA didn't make it last year, as the team struggled to a 19-14 record (11-7 in the Pac-12).
