Malik Hall suffers apparent injury in closing moments of first half vs. Michigan
Malik Hall just recently returned to action for Michigan State, but he was looking good early against Michigan. After proving to be a catalyst in the first half of action, he was injured right before the halftime buzzer.
Competing for a loose ball, Hall took a hip check and foul from a Michigan player near the sideline. Hall’s left ankle/foot appeared to buckle after the contact, and he was in visible pain after the incident.

Hall did stay in the to shoot free throws, nailing both in a 1-and-1 situation to finish the half with a game-high 9 points. Hopefully, he’s able to finish the game and looks okay in the second half.
Hall has played two games since returning from a month-long absence while dealing with a foot injury. He has continued to round into form after getting back on the court, and Hall was a key factor in helping Michigan State build a 27-18 lead at the break of Saturday’s rivalry game.
