Michigan announces Isaiah Livers underwent surgery, provides expected recovery timeline
Michigan senior Isaiah Livers underwent surgery on his injured right foot on Friday, the school announced.
Livers missed Michigan’s NCAA Tournament run with the foot injury. The team’s second-leading scorer and top 3-point shooter was a huge loss for the Wolverines, but Juwan Howard’s squad was still able to reach the Elite Eight and came a shot away from earning a spot in the Final Four.
According to the school, Livers is expected to have a six-month timeline for his recovery.
Livers has played in 118 career games at Michigan and has averaged 8.3 points per game over the course of his four seasons. He opted to return to return to Ann Arbor following the 2019-20 season rather than declare for the NBA Draft.
With the NCAA granting student-athletes an additional year of eligibility, Livers could return to Michigan for another season. At this time, he has not made an announcement on his future with the program.
During the 2020-21 season, Livers averaged 13.1 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. He shot a career-best 43.1% from behind the 3-point line and hit on 41.2% of his attempts from deep during his career. He was also an 85.6% free throw shooter for his career.
Michigan ended the season as B1G regular season champions and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
