LOS ANGELES -- UCLA forward David Wear sat out most of practice Friday and his status for Sunday's game against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo is still up in the air, coach Ben Howland said.

Wear, a 6-foot-10 junior who is averaging 10.5 points and 5.8 rebounds, crashed hard to the court Monday during No. 11 UCLA's loss to Georgetown and missed the victory over Georgia on Tuesday because of a lower back bruise. Howland said Wear tried to practice Friday but couldn't make it through.

"It'll get better each day," Howland said. "I don’t have a feel for whether he'll be able to practice (Saturday)."

Howland said the team's medical staff was working on fitting Wear with a special padding to protect the area where Wear injured himself but that "it's a tough place to try and pad."

Guard Tyler Lamb, still recovering from knee surgery, sat out of practice and is questionable for Sunday's game. Center Tony Parker, who missed Monday's game against Georgetown because of back spasms and played only three minutes Tuesday, was "not at 100 percent" during Friday's practice, Howland said, and he will continue to be evaluated before Sunday game.
