LOS ANGELES (AP) -- UCLA freshman guard Shabazz Muhammad is expected to be out two to four weeks with a right shoulder strain, putting him in jeopardy of missing the Bruins' season opener against Indiana State on Nov. 9.

Muhammad injured his shoulder during practice on Wednesday.

He has been the subject of an ongoing NCAA investigation involving alleged improper benefits he received in his recruitment from boosters of his Las Vegas AAU program.

He was one of the nation's mostly highly sought-after recruits last spring when he chose UCLA over Kentucky and Duke.

The school has only said that Muhammad, his family and UCLA are working with the NCAA during the process.
