Update provided for Ohio State's Meechie Johnson ahead of Minnesota showdown
Ohio State is likely to be without guard Meechie Johnson again Tuesday night.
Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported on Tuesday night that Johnson is “doubtful” for the Tuesday night game against Minnesota. It will be the second-straight game he has missed, also sitting out of Saturday’s game against Michigan. The Buckeyes defeated the Wolverines 68-57.
Johnson also missed three games earlier this season because of a concussion and facial fracture. He’s been forced to wear a mask while playing due to the severity of the injury.
