Tom Crean addressed the media earlier today in advance of Thursday’s tilt in the Big Ten Tournament against Penn State. The first year IU coach offered the following update on junior guard Devan Dumes:
“He is still being evaluated and treated by our doctors. And certainly Tim (Garl) continues to rehabilitate him. I am not overly hopeful, but at the same time we are not ruling him out and we just have to continue to see how he heals up over the next few days and see what happens. But I don’t want to give you any misleading hopes that it is a given that he will play. But I also don’t want to rule him out in case something changes. That is where we are at with him.”
So according to Crean’s update, it’s looking like Dumes will be a game time decision. And if he’s not 100% healthy, it would be hard to justify playing him and risking a more damaging injury.
