LOS ANGELES (AP) -John Wooden had the cast on his arm cut open because of swelling, but was otherwise in good health and high spirits on his third day in the hospital, the former UCLA basketball coach's daughter said Sunday.
``Dad is doing well and his vital signs are good,'' Nan Muehlhausen said in a statement.
The 97-year-old Wooden broke two bones when he fell at his condo Thursday and underwent blood transfusions at an undisclosed hospital over the weekend.
Doctors found Wooden had a hairline fracture in his wrist and a fractured collarbone.
``Everyone expects that he will make a full recovery,'' Muehlhausen said. ``It will just take a couple of more days before he can go home.''
Doctors cut open the cast on Wooden's left arm, but will recast the arm before he goes home, Muehlhausen said.
Wooden coached the Bruins to an unsurpassed 10 NCAA basketball championships in the 1960s and 1970s, including consecutive titles from 1967-1973. His teams also had an 88-game winning streak.
