Update 8:12 p.m. Wahl will start for the Badgers tonight.

Update 7:15 p.m. Wahl is active. Whether he starts or not is still to be determined.

Update 6:50 p.m. Wahl is on the court getting some shots up before the game. Seems he might be a go this evening.

Update 5:50 p.m. Some internet sleuthing makes it look like Wahl’s ankle should be good enough for him to go tonight. But if you need more of a case, here’s the official uniform reveal from the Badgers on social media for tonight’s “blackout” game at the Kohl Center.

These pics were probably taken awhile ago, but maybe they don’t put it out there if he isn’t a go? Just another tea leaf to read, but it does seem more likely than not the forward plays this evening.

The Wisconsin Badgers will return home to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET and the status for senior forward Tyler Wahl is questionable for the matchup. Wahl is dealing with an ankle injury and has missed the last three games for UW. Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Jornal Sentinel reported on Monday that the senior had returned to practice for non-contact drills, but his status remained day-to-day.

We’ll update anything that we see here as we get closer to tip-off.

Wahl initially suffered his ankle injury during the team’s 63-60 victory over Minnesota back on January 3, playing just nine minutes before exiting the contest in the first half. The Lakeville, MN, native was the Badgers’ leading scorer prior to the injury, averaging 13.2 points per game along with 6.4 assists. In his absence, the Badgers have dropped three straight. They fell to Illinois and Michigan State before getting roasted by Indiana in a 63-45 road loss on Saturday.

Wisconsin enters the matchup as a 3.5-point home favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook. The total is installed at 129.5.
