LOS ANGELES (AP) UCLA forward Travis Wear has been diagnosed with appendicitis.

The fifth-year senior didn't practice Monday and was being treated at a hospital.

A team spokesman says there's no timetable for Wear to return.

Wear averaged 10.9 points and 5.2 rebounds while starting 31 of 32 games last season. He was expected to be a key part of the Bruins' frontcourt again this season.

UCLA opens the season at home against Drexel on Nov. 8.
