Isaiah Livers out with stress fracture for Michigan in Big Ten Tournament

The senior guard for the No. 2 team in America will miss the balance of the conference tournament, and his status for the NCAA’s is in question.

Bad news for the Michigan Wolverines this morning, as senior forward Isaiah Livers had an MRI that has revealed a stress fracture in his foot. He won’t play in today’s Big Ten semifinal game against Ohio State, or the final tomorrow afternoon if Michigan is a winner.

Livers played just 15 minutes against Maryland in the Wolverines 79-66 win in the Big Ten quarterfinals, a season low for the player averaging 13.1 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.

Most stress fractures take more than a week to heal, and although there’s no official status update for Livers as of now, his NCAA Tournament might be in jeopardy as well.

The line for the game has been affected as well. The Wolverines are still favored, but the line is down to 5.5 from 6.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Livers had 12 points and four rebounds in Michigan’s 92-87 win over Ohio State on February 21st in Value City Arena in Columbus.
