Michigan State’s Lucas suffering from ankle sprain
MADISON, Wis. — Michigan State’s Kalin Lucas has a sprained right ankle and it isn’t yet known whether he’ll be available for the fifth-ranked Spartans’ next game.
Last season’s Big Ten player of the year was injured halfway through the second half of Michigan State’s 67-49 loss to No. 16 Wisconsin on Tuesday night. X-rays taken Wednesday confirmed the ankle sprain.
The school says Lucas’s status for Saturday night’s game between Michigan State (19-4, 9-1 Big Ten) at Illinois (14-8, 6-3) will depend on how the ankle responds to treatment, and that won’t be known until at least Thursday.
Lucas is averaging 16 points a game this season.
