LOS ANGELES - UCLA senior forward James Keefe suffered an injury to his left shoulder on Tuesday night. The results of his MRI were negative, however, there was some instability to the joint. Keefe is slated to be out for 4-6 weeks while going through rehabilitation.

"We are very relieved that the injury isn't going to be a long-term one," UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland said. "Everything looks to be intact and we are very happy for him and for the team."

This isn't the first injury that Keefe has sustained to his left shoulder. On Aug. 10, 2007, Keefe had surgery to repair a torn labrum in the same shoulder that forced him to miss the first 12 games of the 2007-08 season.

Keefe is one of three seniors on the Bruins' 2009-10 roster and averaged 3.0 points and 3.4 rebounds per game last year. UCLA opens the season on Nov. 16 with a home contest against Cal State Fullerton, which is a little less than six weeks away.
