Lucien was injured when he hit his head on the ground during a drill at Cal State San Bernardino. He got up, but wobbled to the medical tent.

UCLA team doctor John DiFiori treated Lucien for 15 minutes until paramedics arrived. DiFiori is a head injury specialist. Lucien was immobilized by paramedics.

Lucien is expected to attend Wednesday's practice session at Cal State San Bernardino, but the team wouldn't say whether he would take part in drills.
