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.

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.
