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.

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.
