Injury status for Indiana’s Xavier Johnson, Jordan Geronimo vs. Michigan on Saturday

Will two key players return to the Hoosier lineup tonight?

The No. 18 Indiana Hoosiers up set to visit the Michigan Wolverines tonight at 6 p.m. ET and the injury status of guard Xavier Johnson and forward Jordan Geronimo is something to keep an eye on as we inch closer to tip off. Both players have missed several games for IU with Johnson recovering from a broken foot and Geronimo dealing with a calf injury.

Johnson will most likely miss this evening’s contest as he is still working his way back to the court. He has been out since December 17, where he broke his foot in an early-season loss to Kansas and was averaging 9.9 points and 4.9 assists prior to the injury. Johnson told the Hoosier Roundtable podcast this week that he hopes to be back by the end of the regular season.

Geronimo can be considered probable and will most likely be good to go for tonight’s matchup. He sustained his calf injury early in the team’s victory over Minnesota on January 25 and sat out of the next few games. He warmed up with the team before last Saturday’s game against Purdue but ultimately didn’t play. A few days later, he logged just one minute in the team’s victory over Rutgers on Tuesday. Geronimo was averaging 5.4 points and 3.1 rebounds prior to the injury.
