Ohio State will be without two if its top big men on Thursday.

Both Zed Key and Kyle Young were listed as unavailable on the Buckeyes' official status report ahead of Ohio State's 7 p.m. tip-off against Michigan State at the Schottenstein Center.

Key, who has started 23 games for Ohio State this season, continues to recover from an ankle injury suffered this past Sunday. Key turned his ankle after stepping on an opponent's foot during the second half of the Buckeyes' 75-60 loss to Maryland on the road. Key averages 8.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, and sat out of Tuesday's upset loss to Nebraska as well.

Young started in place of Key against Nebraska, but left the game after playing just eight minutes due to an undisclosed illness. Young is averaging 8.2 points and 4.9 rebounds for the Buckeyes in his fifth season in the program.
