UCLA guard David Singleton sustained an ankle injury in the final minute of the team's second-round victory over Northwestern on Saturday. He came down on his foot hard and had to be helped off the floor by his teammates. He was able to walk back to the floor for the postgame handshake line, so that's an early encouraging sign for the Bruins.
Singleton's status is definitely something to monitor in the coming days as UCLA prepares for its Sweet 16 showdown against either Gonzaga or TCU on Thursday. The senior has played a huge part for the Bruins this season, averaging 9.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. He dropped 11 points in their first-round victory over UNC Asheville on Thursday before putting up five points and six rebounds against Northwestern on Saturday.
UCLA can ill afford any more injuries to its backcourt with Jaylen Clark out for the tournament with an Achilles injury.
