Update: Coach Ben Howland said forward Reeves Nelson would not move back into the starting lineup “any time soon” in the wake of early-season suspensions that sidelined him for 11/2 games before he returned during the Maui Invitational. “He’s got to have a good attitude, be accountable for a while here before that’s going to happen,” Howland said, noting a few slip-ups in which Nelson reverted to his practice habits. Forward Travis Wear is expected to play after cutting his foot in a snorkeling mishap, but forward De’End Parker remains out because of a knee injury.
