Rodney Zimmerman's knee injury is not as serious as some close to the UCLA basketball program had feared, arthroscopic surgery revealed Friday. Dr. Gerald Finerman, who performed the procedure at the UCLA Medical Center, said in a statement released by UCLA that he had removed a small area of scar tissue from Zimmerman's right knee. Finerman said that Zimmerman, a 6-foot-9 freshman from Colorado Springs, Colo., is suffering from tendinitis of the knee, which Finerman hopes will heal with rest.

If Tuesday night's exhibition is any indication, UCLA's basketball team will be thought of as anything but boring this season. The high-scoring Bruins warmed up for their season-opening game against Indiana on Friday at Springfield, Mass., by routing Trencin of Czechoslovakia, 112-50, at Pauley Pavilion. Behind 20 steals, eight blocked shots and five dunks, UCLA dominated Trencin, which is 0-3 on its West Coast tour.

UCLA's annual intrasquad basketball game usually gives fans their first chance to see the Bruins' new players in action. Thursday night, a crowd of 4,788 in Pauley Pavilion watched two-thirds of UCLA's highly regarded recruiting class sit on the bench, Ed O'Bannon nursing his injured left knee, Rodney Zimmerman his injured right knee. The other top recruit, guard Shon Tarver, had 16 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for the Blue team, which lost, 106-98, to the White.

Freshman basketball player Rodney Zimmerman of UCLA is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday at the UCLA Medical Center, it was announced Wednesday. In a statement, Coach Jim Harrick said he hopes that Zimmerman, a 6-foot-9 center from Colorado Springs, Colo., will be out of practice for no longer than three weeks. That would allow him to return for UCLA's opener against UC Irvine in the first round of the Great Alaska Shootout on Nov. 23 at Anchorage.

Far from the madding crowd pursuing the rim-shattering story of Shaquille (the Unreal) O'Neal, Rodney Zimmerman sat in the near-empty stands of Williams Arena Monday, talking quietly with two reporters. He couldn't understand the attention. "I'm embarrassed," Zimmerman said. "I've embarrassed myself to death. I can't believe I'm sitting here talking to you after the way I've played. I shouldn't even be showing my face. "After the way I've played, I should be back on the next plane home.
