Wear, a 6-foot-10 sophomore who is averaging 10.6 points and 5.1 rebounds, was treated with antibiotics at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and has responded well, a school spokesman said, but doctors wanted to keep him an additional night for observations.
He is questionable for UCLA's game Saturday against UC Davis at the Honda Center.
Wear suffered a laceration on the same foot during a snorkeling mishap while in Hawaii for the Maui Invitational. That required stitches, but doctors were uncertain if the infection was related to that.
Wear is in his first season with the Bruins since transferring from North Carolina along with twin brother David.
