Michigan G Derrick Walton Jr. no longer in walking boot
Michigan sophomore guard Derrick Walton will travel with his team for its game against Maryland this Saturday, though his status is still uncertain.
Walton was able to participate in some light basketball exercises on Thursday and was slated to do some more work Friday. Walton will travel with Michigan for Saturday's game against No. 14 Maryland but is unlikely to suit up.
"We're going to try to do a few things with him [Friday]; we did [Thursday] and it wasn't promising," Beilein said. "But we'll see how his foot reacts after yesterday's very light workout. He'll make the trip, but I'm not thinking right now that he'll be available."
Walton's injury, even when available, has contributed to Michigan's woes on the court this year. The Wolverines snapped a five-game losing streak with a win over Ohio State this past Sunday.
Walton has missed the last seven Michigan games. This season, he's averaged 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3 assists.
