No. 2 seed Purdue won its first round game on Friday, but lost center Isaac Haas, who suffered a fractured elbow.
Haas practiced with the team on Saturday with a brace and was labeled as a game time decision leading up to the Boilermakers' second round game against Butler, however he will not be on the floor when his team battles for a spot in the Sweet 16.
According to Allie LaForce, Haas' brace he would have needed to wear was not cleared by the NCAA.
Haas fell on the elbow and suffered the injury midway through the second half on Friday battling for a rebound, with the Boilermakers boasting a more than 20 point lead. He remained in the game, however Purdue announced that X-rays after the game revealed a fracture.
Haas, a 7-foot-2 center, finished with 9 points and 10 rebounds in the win. He is averaging 14.9 points and 5.6 rebounds per game for Purdue this season.
Purdue will play Butler in the second round on Sunday.
