Mike Moser of the UNLV Rebels - Ethan Miller

UNLV junior Mike Moser dislocated his elbow in the first half of the Runnin' Rebels 76-75 win over Cal Sunday afternoon. In a pair of reports, UNLV head coach Dave Rice said the Rebels could be without Moser "for some time."

UPDATE Sunday, 9:54 p.m. PT: Both Taylor Bern of the Las Vegas Sun and Gary Parrish from CBSSports.com reported that UNLV head coach Dave Rice's update on Junior forward Mike Moser's status after he dislocated his elbow Sunday night against Cal in Berkekly, Calif.

Bern reports that Moser declined to comment after the game but noted that "Rice’s tone plus the reactions of many people who saw the play over and over on ESPNU indicate that the junior forward will be gone for the foreseeable future."

“It’s not good,” Rice said. “Specifically what that means I don’t know, but I would suspect we’ll be playing without him for some time.”

This puts Moser’s professional future in question, as Rice said it’s possible Moser would come back to Las Vegas next season

Sunday, Junior forward Mike Moser suffered a dislocated elbow early in the first half of the UNLV Runnin' Rebels 76-75 win over the California Golden Bears in Berkeley, Calif. Sunday afternoon, several outlets are reporting.

The injury occurred when Moser, a first-team All-Mountain West selection last season as a sophomore, was chasing after a loose ball and had a Cal player fall on his elbow. He was seen holding his arm as he made his way into the locker room.

Moser, who was named to the Wooden Award Preseason Watch List last month, is averaging 12.3 points and nearly 10 rebounds a game to lead the Runnin' Rebels, who are ranked No. 21 in the AP poll and No. 18 in the Coaches poll. He plays a little more than 30 minutes a game for UNLV, tho he sat out of Tuesday's win at Portland due to a hip flexor injury.

Taylor Bern of the Las Vegas Sun live blogged the injury with 3:15 left in the first half. In a tweet during the game, beat writer Matt Youmans of the Las Vegas Review-Journal speculated that Moser could be out for a month.That timeline could have Moser out for the Runnin' Rebels Mountain West opener at the New Mexico Lobos.
