MSU's Matt McQuaid questionable for Indiana game
Bad news on the injury report continues to pour in at Michigan State.
On Thursday, Spartans head coach Tom Izzo told reporters after practice that guard Matt McQuaid recently suffered a right ankle sprain and is questionable for Saturday’s game against Indiana. Izzo, being the optimist, is hopeful McQuaid will be able to take the floor.
Michigan State has battled a slew of injuries this season. In December, the team lost star Joshua Langford and recently lost Nick Ward to a hand injury. Langford is out for the year and Ward could return at some point this season, but there is not a timetable.
Tom Izzo said after the team’s practice today G Matt McQuaid sprained his right ankle recently, but is “hopeful” the senior can play Saturday at Indiana.
