Four of Coach Izzo's top six players have been hobbled with injuries. Forward Raymar Morgan has his foot in a boot to immobilize a sprained ankle. Forward Delvon Roe, who was recovering from knee surgery that ended his senior season in high school, recently suffered a concussion. Guard Korie Lucious sat out more than six months last year because of offseason foot surgery -- now, he's sprained the ankle on the same foot. Finally guard Chris Allen has been bothered by a groin injury.
When Michigan State meets Gonzaga, we should expect to see guards Lucious and Allen even if they aren't at 100%. Concern surrounding the status of the Michigan bigs appears to be substantial. No doubt we shall hear more about this pair in the near future.
