LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA basketball coach Ben Howland visited coaching great John Wooden in the hospital Monday, where Wooden is recovering from a fall.
The 97-year-old Wooden was in good spirits and his vital signs were normal, his daughter Nan Muehlhausen said in a statement.
``The doctors are trying to keep the pain at a low level and the medication makes Dad drowsy, but he is doing well,'' she said. ``I think they are going to put a new cast on his arm.''
Wooden broke two bones when he fell at his condo Thursday and underwent blood transfusions at an undisclosed hospital over the weekend. His left wrist is in a cast.
Muehlhausen said she expects it will be a couple more days before her father goes home.
``He is doing fine and everyone expects him to make a full recovery, but these things take time,'' she said.
Howland dropped by a day after the No. 3 Bruins completed a weekend sweep of the Arizona schools on the road.
