UNLV's Mike Moser returns to practice, questionable for UNC game

USA TODAY Sports

UNLV Rebels forward Mike Moser returned to full contact practice after suffering an elbow injury, but his status for Saturday's game against North Carolina is unknown.

Mike Moser has returned to full contact practice after a dislocated elbow forced him to miss the past four games, but it's still unclear if the UNLV Runnin' Rebels forward will play this Saturday against the North Carolina Tar Heels, according to Sporting News.

Injured in a Dec. 9 game against California, Moser is more likely to return for next week's games against Chicago State or Cal State Bakersfield, UNLV coach Mike Rice said, but the forward has not been ruled out against the Tar Heels. Rice told the Las Vegas Sun that Moser is day-to-day, and confidence is what he'll be looking for before the double-double machine returns to the court.

The 6'8, 210 pound forward averaged 14 points and 10.5 rebounds last season, and in six games for the No. 20 Rebels (11-1) this year is averaging 10.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.

Part of his statistical drop has been because of Moser's talented frontcourt mates in freshman forward Anthony Bennett and center Khem Birch.
