Tom Izzo updates health of Michigan State's roster coming out of rough stretch in B1G play
Tom Izzo is looking to get Michigan State’s season stabilized heading toward the end of January. Fortunately, it sounds like the Spartan roster is going to be in a much healthier position moving forward.
On Tuesday, Izzo updated the litany of health issues going on with the Spartans. After battling a stomach virus, Izzo says Tyson Walker is back to around 90%. Izzo also maintains hope that Malik Hall will be able to return to practice a little bit while continuing to battle his foot injury.
Izzo also commented on the extra benefit of a day off to rest following a grueling stretch for Michigan State.
Izzo says Tyson Walker is back to about 90% after his stomach virus. Hoping to get him back to practice, and also hopes Malik Hall “will be able to practice a little bit. That will be big.”

The Spartans have gone 1-3 in their past 4 games after previously riding a 7-game winning streak. Michigan State did have an impressive upset of Rutgers and a one-point loss to Purdue in that stretch but has fallen to 5-4 in league play.
For now, the Spartans are 1 of 9 B1G teams with at least 3 losses in league play while Purdue leads the pack. We’ll see if Michigan State can get things turned around with an improved health status moving forward.
