There are plenty of key injuries ahead of today’s college basketball games, so here’s a last minute update 90 minutes before the early slate tips off.

Ayo Dosumnu, Illinois

No. 5 Illinois leading scorer Ayo Dosumnu won’t go to day due to the facial injury he sustained earlier this week at Michigan State. It’s his second-straight game, and the loss of the 21 points per game scorer and Big Ten Player of The Year candidate is a huge one for the Illini, who are in search of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Sharife Cooper, Auburn

One of the best point guards in America is also doubtful for today, as 20.2 ppg scorer Sharife Cooper likely won’t play against Tennessee. Cooper’s assist rate of 50.6% of baskets while he’s on the court is the best in Division I basketball.

M.J. Walker, Florida State

FSU’s top scorer at 13.6 points per game, the senior Walker is 33-71 from three-point range this season, and helps anchor one of the best offensive teams in college basketball. He’s listed as a game-time decision for the Noles against North Carolina with an unknown ailment, and missed the Seminoles Wednesday night game against Miami.

David Johnson, Louisville

The Cards second-leading scorer behind Carlik Jones will be available after a non-COVID illness kept him out of UL’s game vs. Notre Dame on Tuesday, but he’ll be ready to go Saturday at Duke in Cameron Indoor.
