UPDATE 3:42 p.m.

Iowa Hawkeyes freshman guard CJ Fredrick is listed as questionable for tonight’s game with the Michigan State Spartans in Lansing, Michigan at the Breslin Center. Fredrick has been an impact player for Fran McCaffery’s squad, shooting a monstrous 46.7% from three-point range this season, good enough for 16th in all of Division I amongst qualifying players.

Fredrick rolled his ankle in what appeared to be a brutal injury on February 13th against Indiana. But it apparently wasn’t as bad as it looked and he’s been listed as questionable in every game since, and will return to the lineup this season. But the question is if he’ll do so tonight. Iowa defeated Minnesota on the road 58-55 in his absence, as well as No. 23 Ohio State 85-76 last Thursday in his absence.

Right now the Tigers are an 8.5 point favorite at home over the Rebels, with that likely to change depending on the status of Okoro. The forward is averaging 13.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists on the season.

As of now the No. 18 Hawkeyes are 8.5 underdogs to the No. 24 Spartans tonight, but that might change if the floor-stretching Fredrick is available. He’s averaging 10.7 points, 2.6 assists, and 2.0 rebounds per game this season, with those numbers increasing as the season has continued before his injury.
