Honeycutt, averaging 14.9 points and eight rebounds, sprained his shoulder Dec. 21 during the Bruins' 75-59 victory over Montana State and sat out UCLA's 74-73 victory over UC Irvine on Dec. 23.
"It's good, it's a lot better," Honeycutt said. "It's almost 100%"
Honeycutt, a 6-8 sophomore forward, said he has full range of movement in his shoulder, but was feeling a little soreness after a two hour, 20 minute practice.
"It got a little fatigued, but that was because I went through two and a half hours of practice and did some shooting after," Honeycutt said. "Now I've got full movement. I couldn't put the keys in the car, brush my teeth. There were a lot of things I couldn't do. It was awkward."
