Injury luck is not on Musa Jallow's side.

The fourth-year Ohio State wing made his return to the court with 12 minutes in the season-opening win last week against Illinois State after missing the entirety of last season and taking an unplanned redshirt due to two surgeries on his right ankle, but he now finds himself on the mend once again.

Jallow will miss Wednesday's game versus Morehead State with what head coach Chris Holtmann called a "lower-leg injury."

"Musa will be out this next game," Holtmann said on Tuesday. "He continues to battle that lower-leg injury. I'll keep it general with that. I think he's making progress. But as far as projecting beyond our game versus Morehead, I couldn't give you answers on that."

Holtmann didn't learn of the injury until he nearly subbed Jallow into Sunday's game with UMass Lowell. The coach was then informed he wasn't able to play. Jallow wore a medical boot on his right foot during the second half.

Jallow averaged 2.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 15 minutes per game during the 2018-19 season as a true sophomore. He's only played one game since.
