Basketball: Anthony Stover injured in return
By Blair Angulo
Backup center Anthony Stover suffered a dislocated left shoulder in practice Wednesday and will be re-examined Thursday, coach Ben Howland said. Stover, a redshirt sophomore who had sat out the previous week because of a concussion, is expected to miss a couple of weeks.
"It's really lousy luck for him to just be coming back and then, boom, getting hurt again," Howland said.
Junior guard De'End Parker is still out because of a concussion he suffered last week but is improving. Team trainers will continue to monitor his progress, Howland said. Parker, a transfer from City College of San Francisco, could return sometime in the next week.
"He had a pretty severe concussion that affected him in terms of sensitivity to light and sound; he missed a midterm," Howland said. "Today was the first day he's felt better since Saturday. He was at practice for the first time. He sat there and watched."
Junior forward Brendan Lane underwent an endoscopy Wednesday for stomach issues and did not practice. His results came back normal, Howland said. Lane will play in Thursday's closed scrimmage at the Los Angeles Sports Arena against Cal State Fullerton.
"We're still pretty green right now, but the main part is staying healthy," Howland said.
