UCLA’s Lamb has successful surgery

UCLA guard Tyler Lamb has undergone arthroscopic left knee

surgery.

The school said in a statement that Lamb’s Tuesday surgery was a

success, and he’s expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks.

The school had announced the surgery plans Sunday night, but

didn’t explain how Lamb got injured.

The junior from Santa Ana, Calif., averaged 9.0 points, 3.6

rebounds and 2.8 assists playing in all 33 games last season, and

played in all three of UCLA’s games on its August tour of

China.

He missed a month after having a similar procedure on the same

knee in July 2010, the summer before his freshman year.

The Bruins open the season on Nov. 9, hosting Indiana State at a

renovated Pauley Pavilion.
