Bail was logging only 9.0 minutes a game, posting averages of 1.5 points and 2.6 rebounds for the Bruins. But this is a big blow to the bench, one that wasn’t that deep to begin with. Without the 6-foot-9 Bail for the remainder of the season, UCLA’s bench play will consist of Thomas Welsh, Noah Allen and Gyorgy Goloman, who is only seeing 6.6 minutes per game through the first 11 contests.
UCLA is at Alabama on Sunday night before the team begins Pac-12 play on Jan. 2.
