Tom Izzo made an appearance on WDFN yesterday. His comments indicate that (1) Suton probably won’t need arthroscopic surgery on his knee but (2) he expects to be without Suton for at least 90% of the Old Spice Classic–if not all of it. Izzo indicates the situation simply requires rest (in which case I’d question whether Suton should play even a few minutes this weekend).
I’m hopeful that our back-up big men bring enough to the table for MSU to still have success in Orlando. After watching most of the first half of the North Carolina-Oregon game last night, though, I’m fairly concerned about how we’re going to deal with UNC’s rebounding ability next Wednesday night with Suton either out or severely limited.
