UCLA guard Prince Ali has knee surgery
UCLA sophomore guard Prince Ali underwent successful surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee after suffering the injury July 8 while playing in an open gym.
Ali, who averaged 3.9 points in 11.8 minutes per game last season, will be reevaluated in four months and could miss only a few games next season.
Ali got off to a promising start as a freshman, highlighted by a monster dunk in the Bruins’ upset of then-No. 1 Kentucky, before fading toward the end of the season.
Barring a setback or a redshirt season, he presumably would come off the bench again next season.
