Bozeman Suffers Torn Meniscus

Nov. 30, 2001

UCLA true freshman Cedric Bozeman, who has started the Bruins' first four games at the point guard position, has a torn meniscus (cartilage) in his right knee and will undergo surgery at the UCLA Medical Center early next week.

After the Bruins returned from the Maui Invitational, Bozeman's right knee began swelling and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test was ordered Thursday night as a precautionary measure (and it revealed the tear).

The rehabilitation and recuperation period will take approximately four-to-six weeks.

Bozeman, a McDonald's All-American as a senior prepster at Mater Dei HS last season, after four starts for the Bruins was averaging 25.0 minutes, 5.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and a team-high 3.3 assists. He's shooting 47.4 (9-19) from the field, 33.3 (1-3) from three-point range and 66.7 (2-3) from the foul line.
