UCLA’s Shipp out for season

first_img “I appreciate Josh trying to come back and trying to help his team,” Howland said. “We’re off to a great start and Josh tried to do everything he could to help his team. For the next 2 1/2 months, Josh will do nothing but rest and rehab and will be constantly evaluated by our team physician and Dr. Guanche.” UCLA (13-2, 3-1) plays Washington State at home on Thursday, and entertains No. 13 Washington on Saturday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I tried to go again last weekend and I just decided I couldn’t do it the whole year, there was just too much pain.” Shipp started 23 of UCLA’s last 24 games as a freshman last season, when he averaged 9.3 points and 5.2 rebounds. “At this point, his pain levels are just unacceptable, just way too much to handle,” UCLA coach Ben Howland said. “He has constant throbbing during every practice and every game, he’s very sore every day, and the next morning he’s obviously very stiff. And it’s not getting better. “That’s the main thing, that’s the concern. He has made this decision, through consultation with the physician that did the surgery, his mother and his family, our staff and our trainer. The bottom line is his long-term health.” The university said once the season is over, it will petition the NCAA for a medical hardship waiver, hoping to get Shipp another year of eligibility. UCLA starting forward Josh Shipp will be sidelined for the rest of the season because of increasing pain and discomfort in his right hip. The 6-foot-5 sophomore had an outpatient arthroscopic right hip procedure performed by Dr. Carlos A. Guanche on Sept. 28 at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute. The procedure repaired a torn labrum and included the removal of a bone spur. After missing the first 11 games of the season, Shipp started the 11th-ranked Bruins’ first four Pac-10 games and averaged 11.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 29.8 minutes. “It’s been something that’s been lingering in my mind for a while,” Shipp said in a statement issued by the school Tuesday. “For the Stanford and Cal games, I really didn’t feel comfortable, but I wanted to go out there and try and help the team get a win. last_img read more
