The latest from IU Athletics Media Relations:
Indiana senior All-American candidate D.J. White is being treated for an injured left knee and underwent an MRI later today than expected (medical equipment issues). IU’s medical staff is awaiting further evaluation of the test. No further determination regarding his playing status for Tuesday’s game against Purdue has been made.
So yes: I suppose that really isn’t an update … or at least one we want to hear. It was encouraging that White walked off the court on his own accord and came back to the bench under his own power, but until it’s evaluated by an MRI, I guess we won’t know for sure.
Here’s to hoping White can play Tuesday. Even though the team thrived without him last night and I have faith we can put up a fight without him against Purdue, we’re kidding ourselves if we don’t think we need White on the court Tuesday night. It’s the biggest game of the year; we need all weapons locked and loaded.
