Status of Wisconsin's Tyler Wahl still in question for Friday's game vs. Michigan State
The status of Wisconsin forward Tyler Wahl is still undetermined, according to a report from Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.
Wahl, who sustained an ankle injury in Wisconsin’s victory over Northwestern on Tuesday, will be a game-time decision for the Badgers’ Friday night home clash with Michigan State. Wisconsin is looking to maintain its status atop the B1G standings.
Wahl is averaging 11 points and 5.7 rebounds per contest for the Badgers. He’s also playing just less than 29 minutes per game. The forward is fresh off a double-double performance in a win over Northwestern, scoring 14 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.
Wisconsin's Tyler Wahl (ankle) will not have his status determined for tonight's game against Michigan State until closer to game time, per a school spokesman.
Averages 11 PPG and 5.7 RPG.
