Kyle Young will be back on the floor for the Buckeyes on Thursday.

The fifth-year senior forward missed Ohio State's first game back from a 22-day COVID-19 layoff Sunday, as Young was unavailable due to a non-COVID related illness, but he will make his return against Indiana.

Injured forwards Justice Sueing (abdomen) and Seth Towns (back) were the only two Buckeye players listed as unavailable on the team's status report Thursday.

Ohio State's 87-79 overtime win over Nebraska this weekend was the second game Young has missed this season. Due to a vestibular dysfunction condition Young dealt with in the preseason, the program veteran missed the season opener for the Buckeyes.

In the nine games Young has played, he's averaging a career-high 10 points per game as Ohio State's third-leading scorer, and he's doing so off the bench – a role he hasn't played since his sophomore season.

The Buckeyes and Hoosiers are slated for a 7 p.m. tip-off at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana.
