Shabazz Muhammad, one the the UCLA Bruins' stars, has been recovering from a nasty case of pink eye, but now has a sprained ankle as well.

The good news is that he said he'll be ready for Saturday's game against Arizona, and hopefully he'll be able to use both eyes.

Luckily the ankle is better than the pink eye, which he said was partly closed for most of last Sunday's game, and he's not expected to be out of the lineup.

The Freshman is crucial to the team, averaging 18 points per game and 5 rebounds in 30 minutes, so it's crucial that he's able to play through illness and injury.
