Legendary UCLA coach John Wooden remains hospitalized in good condition today after a bone-breaking fall at his home.His daughter says the 97-year-old Wooden is going to be fine but he did have two blood transfusions because he was anemic.

She says Wooden was joking with his family and seemed in good spirits.

He broke his left wrist and his collarbone Thursday night in a fall at his Los Angeles condominium.

His daughter says his wrist is in a cast and he'll need a sling when he leaves the hospital but he's expected to make a full recovery.

He could be home as early as tomorrow.
