Via a tweet from Dustin Dopirak of The Bloomington Herald-Times at today’s media availability, here’s the latest on the status of Indiana sophomore wing Will Sheehey from Tom Crean:

Sheehey has missed the past two games (UMBC and Michigan State) with a left ankle injury after stepping on a ball in practice on Wednesday, Dec. 21. He’s averaging 10.7 points in 20 minutes per game off the bench.

    I hope he can contribute. Can anyone shed any light on what hours Cook Hall will be open tomorrow? My wife and daughters are making the trip up with me for their first Indiana game tomorrow, and I want to take them inside Cook Hall.

    Thanks Dustin! This just doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve heard everything from 2 weeks to this “day-to-day” (said with a smerk) and I’m not sure what to believe. Obviously Ohio State is going to have Sheehey in their scout but why is Crean not letting out more information? Will not making the trip to East Lansing was very interesting to me as well. Could this mean that it is, in fact, “day-to-day” and Sheehey is getting all the treatment possible to be ready for Ohio State? If the injury was going to be another two weeks, I believe Will would’ve made the trip for moral support and the fact he didn’t is still a mystery to me. I guess I am just frustrated with the lack of communication with the fan base. I will trust coach and pray he has a very good reason for doing this. We will soon find out.

    As ive said, per a source (have a buddy whos brother is a manager) it was said that he would be out aprox 4 weeks from when he originally injured it. I know will is tough though, and I hope im wrong!

  • Keep the other coaches guessing. Lots of coaches use this strategy.

    Off topic but I went to watch Broad Ripple play Heritage Christian tonight. Ron Patterson is really good. He displayed a good shot with a lot of quickness. He has a very impressive pull up jumper. I tried to keep stats as accurately as a I could and I had him down for 26 points, 4 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. On the defensive end he showed good ability but he got lazy a few times. He did not close out very well and needs to box out better. He is very talented and once he gets coached up a little bit I think he can be a very nice player at Indiana.

    Don’t know if this is the answer or not for Will not going to MSU, but consider: IU has 17 players on their roster (including Mo) and regulations say a team can take only 15 players to away games. So they may have decided to not take a player who is injured and has no chance of playing. Of course, against MSU @ MSU there wasn’t much chance of the walk-ons playing either but since they can suit up, you take them instead of someone who can’t suit up. Also, why add the stress of travel for Will instead of leaving him at home where he could rest or do
    rehabilitation on his ankle?

    As for the lack of information and updates, when it comes to health issues for students, there are privacy issues to be considered. And as John says, a lot of coaches don’t revel much about injuries anyway, as a strategy to keep other coaches guessing.
