LOS ANGELES (AP) -- UCLA center J'mison Morgan is progressing quickly a week after having arthroscopic knee surgery.

That's what coach Ben Howland said Friday, predicting that Morgan's right knee should be "pretty good to go" by June.

"Bobo is already very mobile," Howland said. "He's also lifting weights and he looks good."

The freshman had the procedure April 16 to remove torn cartilage.

Morgan played 21 of 35 games for the Bruins last season, averaging 2.3 points, 1.0 rebounds and 5.4 minutes.

The Bruins concluded workouts this week, and Howland was enthusiastic about how his returning players did.

Freshman Jrue Holiday has entered the NBA but not hired an agent, so he could still return for his sophomore season.

"We're just going to be really young next year, with or without Jrue Holiday," Howland said.
