Indiana announces OG Anunoby is out indefinitely

Michigan State heads to Indiana on Saturday to take on what could be a shorthanded Hoosiers team.

Late in the first half of Indiana's win over Penn State on Wednesday, sophomore forward OG Anunoby's leg buckled awkwardly and he went down in serious pain. Anunoby was eventually helped off the floor after laying on the ground grabbing his knee. 

Thursday night, Indiana head coach Tom Crean announced that it was in fact a knee injury for Anunoby, who will be out indefinitely.

Wednesday night marked the 6-foot-8 Anunoby's 10th start of the season. In 16 games, he's averaging 11.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 steals. A strong, athletic forward, Anunoby scored eight points on 4-for-10 shooting to go with five rebounds and two blocks in last season's lone meeting between the Hoosiers and Spartans.

In all likelihood, Anunoby, who missed three games with an ankle injury earlier this season, won't be available for Saturday's game against MSU, based on Thursday's announcement.

Indiana was already without Juwan Morgan, a junior forward averaging 7.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, because of an ankle/foot injury Wednesday night. He was a game-time decision for that game and it's uncertain if he'll be back Saturday.
