Jett Howard contributed 10 points and 5 rebounds in Michigan’s 84-72 win over Michigan State on Saturday night. The Wolverines won despite Howard missing the final 14:09 of the second half.

Howard injured his ankle after making a jumper that tied the game 46-46. He landed awkwardly, putting no weight on his ankle as he left the game.

After the game, Michigan coach Juwan Howard, Jett’s father, did not have any updates. Juwan said they’re praying for good news, and noted his son’s toughness. One can expect Jett will ask to play whether he’s truly ready or not.

“I haven’t heard anything yet,” Juwan Howard told reporters. “Just praying, because we need him. We also need a healthy Jett. One thing about Jett, he’s a tough kid, he really is. I’ll never forget when we were in London, he wasn’t supposed to play against Kentucky and he was going to make me play him, and that shows how passionate he is about this game, how much he loves this game, and he’s also tough. Then he couldn’t play in the Purdue game, but he begged me to play, but he wasn’t ready. …

“We’re going to look at it and see, gonna get treatment tonight, he’s going to treat it 24/7 like he always does, and that’s the only thing I can give you right now.”

The Wolverines play at Rutgers on Thursday (8:30 p.m., FS1).
