LOS ANGELES (AP) -John Wooden broke his left wrist and collarbone in a fall, leaving the former UCLA basketball coach hospitalized Friday.
Daughter Nan Muehlhausen said the 97-year-old Wooden fell in his condo Thursday night. She said family members visited him at a hospital Friday.
``Dad's spirits are good,'' Muehlhausen said in a statement. ``He is up and joking around with the family. He will probably be in the hospital for a couple of more days before he goes home.''
Wooden has a hairline fracture in his wrist and a fractured collarbone.
``The entire UCLA community wishes Coach Wooden a speedy recovery,'' current Bruins coach Ben Howland said.
