While the 16 teams that have advanced to the regional semifinals of the 2021 NCAA Tournament mostly have their rosters set, there are a few players where their playing status is questionable.

While this list won’t include players such as Collin Gillespie of Villanova that are out for the season, we will add everyone else that may or may not be able to play this weekend.

Oregon State: Rodrigue Andela

Andela is dealing with to an undisclosed physical issue, and his status for the Sweet 16 is unknown as of now. He scored two points on 1-5 from the floor in the opening round of the tournament against Tennessee, but did not appear against Oklahoma State in the Round of 32.

The junior Andela has averaged 4.4 points and 4.5 rebounds for the Beavers in 30 games this season.

UCLA: Jalen Hill

Hill remains out due to a personal matter, and is unlikely to return this season.

Houston: Dejon Jarreau

Jarreau went down with a hip injury in the win over Rutgers in the Round of 32, and his status for the Sweet 16 and Syracuse is questionable. The senior Jarreau averages 10.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game for the Cougars.

Michigan: Isaiah Livers

Livers is now ruled out for the season with a stress fracture in his foot, and isn’t expected to return for the Wolverines this year.
