Basketball: Justin Cobbs fine to play Friday

Word through Cal athletics from coach Mike Montgomery is that point guard Justin Cobbs is fine and will play Friday night when the Bears (2-0) host Oakland U (0-2) of Michigan.

Cobbs took an awkward fall with about 8 1/2 minutes left in Tuesday’s game against Denver and limped off the court. He returned to the bench with ice wrapped around his left knee.

Montgomery said after the game that Cobbs was OK and it seems that remains the case.
