Ohio State's Kyle Young (ankle) will not play today at Michigan State, per Chris Holtmann.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) March 8, 2020
Young suffered the injury back on February 23 in the first half of Ohio State's win over then No. 7 Maryland. Since the injury, he's been in a walking boot and listed as day-to-day.
The assumption is Alonzo Gaffney will also continue to be unavailable, as is point guard DJ Carton, forcing the Buckeyes to play with a short bench.
So far, so good for the depleted Buckeyes however, as they've won four in a row and six of the last seven including back-to-back wins over ranked Michigan and Illinois squads.
Ohio State's battle against the No. 16 Spartans, comes on Senior Day for Tom Izzo's squad and will be televised at 4:30 p.m. on CBS.
