Michigan forward Eli Brooks was still in a walking boot on Wednesday, just two days before the Wolverines are set to play in the Big Ten Tournament.

Brooks suffered an ankle injury against Michigan State in the regular season finale on March 7.

His teammate, Franz Wagner, said Wednesday that he wasn’t sure if Brooks would be able to play.

“I hope he can play, I don’t know if he can play,” Wagner said. “He’ll be out there if he can, but I’m really not sure.”

A Michigan spokesman said his status remains uncertain, according to 247Sports’ Zach Shaw.

Hunter Dickinson also commented on Brooks’ status:

The senior forward is averaging 8.7 points per game while shooting 36.4 percent from 3-point range. His role is vital to the Wolverines on both ends of the court.

Michigan will face either Michigan State or Maryland in the Big Ten Tournament on Friday.

Selection Sunday is on March 14.
