The Ohio State backcourt will be light one key contributor on Thursday.

Freshman guard Meechie Johnson Jr. was listed as unavailable on the Buckeyes' official status report ahead of the 7 p.m. tip-off between Ohio State and Wisconsin at the Kohl Center in Madison. According to the release, Johnson suffered a facial injury in practice this week.

Johnson is averaging 6.6 points per game in 19.7 minutes per game so far this season, and his 40 percent accuracy from 3-point range is second-best among Buckeyes who have attempted at least 25 this year.

The only other two Buckeyes listed as unavailable are fifth- and sixth-year forwards Justice Sueing (abdominal) and Seth Towns (back), who have been dealing with injuries all year.
