LOS ANGELES (AP) -Drew Gordon of UCLA has partially torn the patellar tendon in his right knee during tryouts for the U.S. team that will play in the Under-19 world basketball championships.
The sophomore forward was hurt Tuesday in Colorado Springs, Colo., the university said Wednesday. Gordon was scheduled to return to Los Angeles on Wednesday night, when he will be further evaluated.
There were no immediate details about his prognosis, the school said.
``It is an unfortunate event, but Drew is a resilient kid and he'll get through it,'' UCLA coach Ben Howland said in a statement.
In 2007, Gordon broke his right hand while playing in the USA Basketball men's youth development festival.
Last season, Gordon averaged 3.6 points and 3.4 rebounds while playing in 34 games for the Bruins, whom he led in field-goal percentage at 56 percent.
